Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
I want to improve healthcare and the healthcare industry
by fighting antimicrobial resistance through and developing newer, safer and more effective options to tackle resistant strains of microbes.
It's all part of making a better world.
I want to limit the misuse of antibiotics in Africa.
I also want more funding into the research and development of newer and safer antibiotics.
I want a well coordinated drug distribution chain in Nigeria, to limit the distribution of substandard medicines and to restrict the dispensing of prescription only medicines to Pharmacists.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be felt by everyone who requires healthcare.
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
Restricted access to prescription medications in the absence of a pharmacist or physician
Rekindled interest in medical research in Nigeria and drug development
No more open drug market and no counterfeit or substandard medicines in circulation
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
Government legislation and enforcement of an improved drug distribution and supply chain.
Increase in government allocation to the health and education sector to support research.
Everybody becomes aware of the implications of misusing your prescription medications.
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
