By Johnstone Kpilaakaa

A year after she bagged a bachelor’s degree in pharmacy at Nigeria’s Obafemi Awolowo University, Adeola Ayoola interned at National Hospital Abuja in 2017, at this hospital, Adeola observed that “the hospital was always packed” with people coming to collect drugs refills such as antiretrovirals.

“It was overwhelming the system, over 120 people queued at the pharmacy every day for HIV medications,” she told, “I did not have a solution [at the time], but I spotted the problem.”
