Life In An App!

 

Research shows that the best health care in Nigeria is available in private and non-profit medical facilities. These facilities still typically fail to meet international standards sometimes, due to challenges around inadequate funding, technology or personnel.

Against these odds however, Temie Giwa-Tubosun founded LifeBank in 2015 to help a shortage of blood in Nigeria. The app provides records of blood availability in blood banks across Lagos, allowing health centers to find blood types and order units for delivery. LifeBank currently delivers on average 300 pints of blood monthly to more than 170 hospitals throughout Lagos. Giwa-Tubosun says there’s more to be done to make a difference.
