Healthcare in Nigeria : The promises of Digital Transformation

To maintain a strong economy, Nigeria requires a healthy labor force. Our population is expected to reach 440 million by the year 2050, which is 28 years from now. In the previous 30 years, it has doubled to 218 million people (2022 predictions). Indeed, the diversity and size of the present and future healthcare requirements are immense and much beyond what the existing health ecosystem can provide. Nigeria must start constructing a robust health system that is practical, dependable, inexpensive, and available to all Nigerians, regardless of their social standing, financial level, or geography, in order to prevent a system collapse in the coming years. As the world becomes progressively more digitized, stakeholders continue to look for short-term and long-term answers to the plethora of problems facing the industry, including the opportunities that digital healthcare offers.
