Nurse and patent medicine dealer Mary Digiga manages a shop in Lagos, Nigeria. She wants Shalina Healthcare products on her shelves because “people demand for Shalina products more than other products,” she says. The effectiveness, quality, and affordability of Shalina products keeps her customers coming back for more.
Digiga believes that she should help people because she has the opportunity to do so and because it makes her happy. Her successful business has allowed her to help her family remain financially stable.
Today, Shalina is a major provider of quality, essential medicines for several countries in Africa. Additionally, the company has founded a series of local depots to reach hospitals, clinics, pharmacies, and non-governmental organizations (NGO’s).
Shalina produces over 200 products, and is certified with the World Health Organization and Good Manufacturing Practices – both internationally recognized standards of manufacturing.
Furthermore, the company aims to work with the Ministry of Health to combat the issue of counterfeit medication in Africa.
Their involvement with the African community has lowered infant and adult mortality rates due to an increased presence of analgesics and antibiotics.
