It is about a new report that was published and what this may mean to you – health tech innovators, health care professionals, health entrepreneurs and business men, health enthusiasts.

So the report is titled; THE STATE OF HEALTH TECH IN NIGERIA

The document is arguably one of Nigeria’s most extensive and in-depth research on health tech niche in the country. People prefer to talk about other sectors like FinTech as against Health Tech.
