Nigeria Health Watch on Twitter: aggregating health stories out of Nigeria


Those of you that read Nigeria Health Watch regularly, will know that we routinely collect interesting health news stories in the Nigerian press, and then blog about them. Well, technology is evolving rapidly. Information placed in the hands of the citizens will change our relationship with our “leaders” forever. So, as Nigerians prepare to monitor the polls, we will continue monitoring the health scene. But rather than waiting for us to collect these stories, and sending them out – we will send them to you as they are published on twitter. You can access them by following us on  Twitter here –

This way – you will never miss a story. Anywhere you are, on a cell phone, on your laptop, ipod, ipad or blackberry! The information you need, to influence the destiny of our health will always be – one click away.
