Wellahealth, a player in the technology and healthcare sector, has unveiled a new platform that will enable Nigerians to find cheaper and more potent medicines as alternatives to expensive brands.
The platform, named Welladirect, is designed to change the healthcare industry in Nigeria by addressing the growing concerns surrounding the rising costs of medications.
Ikpeme Neto, founder of Wellahealth, said the launch of the new platform is a commitment to making quality healthcare accessible to everyone, adding that it also represents a future where affordability and convenience are not compromised in the pursuit of well-being.
“It is an indispensable tool for streamlined health maintenance. Users can effortlessly explore approved alternatives within their locality, receiving a curated list aligned with healthcare practitioner recommendations,” he said.
According to Neto, the platform not only provides alternatives to expensive medications but also helps individuals manage chronic illnesses and medical conditions requiring regular medication.
“Having seen firsthand the toll the rising cost of drugs is having on Nigerians, the new platform will offer individuals the opportunity to choose effective alternatives through generic switching of their current expensive routine brand-name medications,” Neto said.
He said the platform connects with Wellahealth’s extensive network of over 2,000 pharmacies to provide the best price for alternative medications.
“Wellahealth is a driving force behind the new platform and will continue to redefine healthcare by leveraging technology. With a steadfast focus on innovation and accessibility, we take a significant stride towards reshaping the healthcare experience for individuals across Nigeria,” Neto said.
