Portraits of the market women in Lagos

Since 2007 the Health Insurance Fund runs a program for market women and there families. About ten thousand market woman are targeted with an estimated family size of four. The women are organized in market organizations and have access to quality health care right around the corner from where they work.

There are over a thousand markets in the city of Lagos. The markets really form the economic heart of this huge Nigerian metropolis. Lagos has a population figure of approximately 17,5 million inhabitants, which makes it is the second largest city in Africa, behind Cairo.  People go to the markets for practically everything: food, music, clothes, cell phones, IT products, to get a haircut or their car fixed. The images provide a good overview of these vital economic centres and the health care provided to these women.



PharmAccess will organize a workshop under the topic 'Right to Health' at this year's edition of the European Development Days.
