Director Statement

"Emergency" was created to generate discussions around Patients' Rights in Nigeria, with a view to drive solutions. Focusing on the story of pregnant Jude and Lucy, we highlight a typical situation ordinary folks and individuals would face while accessing health care in Nigeria. We hope to eventually spur patients who have been wronged into taking action against those who devastate and continue to devastate them.
