The pharmacy also engages in frequent Medical Outreaches operations, and the primary goal of these medical outreaches which holds annually is driven by the realization that public awareness and enlightenment about health issues and management is as critical to achieving a healthy nation.
The role of making healthcare accessible to Nigerians is an essential part of nation-building and the pharmacy is making its contribution. As part of efforts to remedy the difficulties with accessing proper medical tests and drugs in many small communities, these outreaches seize the opportunities of some national holidays to create awareness and offer free medical tests such as Blood pressure checks, blood glucose, BMI, eye and dental tests in partnership with other health care organizations.
“Also, we give out free drugs to patients during such outreaches and public health care centers and agencies such as the Nigeria police, amongst others. More so, we partner with individuals, groups, and religious bodies who want to carry out such programs, giving them financial, materials, and moral support”
