NHIM - What we do

Nigeria Health Innovation Marketplace (NHIM) is a convergence platform for innovators, entrepreneurs, investors, healthcare practitioners/advocates, NGOs, development partners and all key actors in the healthcare value chain from conceptualizer to end user. The marketplace explores and shapes alternative approaches to improving healthcare in Nigeria. In this marketplace, innovations – technologies and processes alike - will be borne, made visible, piloted and ultimately receive investments. We hope to achieve this through a variety of approaches that include sustained engagements and interactions in virtual and physical spaces, knowledge generation and sharing, and creating healthy competition and partnership. Thank you for visiting NHIM and we hope that you will make this your regular stop for healthcare innovations in Nigeria
