The deplorable state of the health sector has been an ongoing conversation among health practitioners. The problem and issues surrounding the health sector can only be solved when we discuss, evaluate and correct them.

The eHealth Symposium is one of such gatherings. Hosted at the iDEA Hub, on the 6th of January, and organised by Medifix Nigeria Limited and the Northwestern University, the event was themed “The Pains and Gains of eHealth in Nigeria — A User-Centric Assessment.

Here are some photos and moments from the eHealth Symposium

Bola Afye specifically mentioned that fact that startups in the ehelath space might need to change thier narrative to mHealth (Mobile Health). Most eHealth solutions are mobile oriented and the data available currently are those mobile users.
