Connecting drug manufacturers with healthcare professionals

    Project description

    Medsaf is a start-up created in 2017 to solve the problem of the inefficiency of the drug supply chain and the proliferation of fake medicines in West Africa. In Africa, between 30% and 50% of prescribed drugs are believed to be fake compromising the treatment of life-threatening diseases such as malaria. Medsaf is making the process of buying and selling medication in Africa’s complex health system easy and efficient. Medsaf gets medications directly from leading local and foreign manufacturers, eliminating issues relating to quality control and ensuring fair pricing, and deliver these medications to hospitals, pharmacies, and clinics all over Nigeria. Medsaf provides its clients with a robust inventory management system that allows them to see real-time stock levels for their medications, receive order reminders and alerts, and access historical sales data for forecasting. After a success in Nigeria, Medsaf now sets out to conquer the African market to combat this scourge more widely. During Vivatech 2019, MEDSAF won the female founder challenge.
