One of the realities that life presents is that the rich have better access to health care system, whereas the poor struggle to access basic health care to stay alive. In a socio-economy like Nigeria, the financially less capable are subject to inadequate provision of basic healthcare. As a result of financial constraints, the poor can’t afford the best of the medicines, hence there is a compromise when medication is prescribed to them and they buy less cheap and less effective drugs that might further endanger their health.
For instance, an indigent patient that earns less than N500 per day with a family of five to support won’t be able to afford adequate treatment for certain medical conditions or he/she may not be able to afford vaccines for their children against preventable diseases
