Similar to the other GCDF idea, leveraging on the opportunity that WhatsApp brings is an efficient way to ensure that no household is excluded in the administration of vaccines. In recent years, WhatsApp has become Nigeria's biggest communication platform, helping to reach those in nooks and cranies where other media cannot easily reach. GCDF is pioneering unique and innovative means of medicare distribution and I would recommend her for support from any quarter willing to give it.

This is an innovative measure that can be easily adapted for a developing African community. One of the areas receiving attention exponential in Africa, Nigeria especially, is attention to and utilisation of social media. From food distribution to laundry services, most promising and progressing ventures are being propelled by social media support and market. Digitalising Medicare is an unexplored yet hugely viable idea and if the idea above is successfully implemented, it will most likely garner continental and global attention and end up winning multiple awards.
