The 84th National Conference of PSN (Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria) was held in Enugu, Nigeria, on October 31st to November 4th, 2011. This year's conference, a longstanding informative and collaborative event, focused on the theme "Achieving Health Sector Goals in Nigeria - Opportunities and Challenges." Over 800 individuals attended this year. The Health Sector goals discussed at this event reflected the following:
- Reduction in Maternal Death
- Reduction in infant mortality
- Increase in access to essential drugs
Additionally, the event sought to communicate the ability of the pharmacy industry to assist in achieving national health goals, especially through fighting counterfeit drugs.
A Sproxil representative Sproxil Nigeria Limited Sales Director Lawrence Nwosu, was awarded the opportunity to participate in this year's conference, and delivered a presentation on "Partnering with PSN to Achieve National Health Sector Goals." The presentation touched on the use of our Mobile Authentication Service (MAS) to reduce distribution and consumption of fake and/or substandard products, and our need for collaboration with pharmacists and healthcare providers to achieve national health goals. The presentation emphasized the ease of our solution and its many benefits.
The conference, once again, received very positive feedback from all those who attended and participated.
Thank you to the organizers of the PSN conference for all of your efforts.
