Yusuf Jimoh, a 300-level student studying Physics /Electronic has led a group of University of Lagos Muslim Students to develop an app that reveals locations and contacts of health centres and general hospitals in Lagos.
“It has information about deadly virus and how to prevent them. It has First Aid corner which summarises instructions on first aid. It also has email and phone contacts to report health issue and to communicate with our doctors. There is also Google map integration with clear address to help local general hospitals in Lagos and their addresses and phone numbers,” Jimoh said.
Available at the Google store, its called the Mobile Health App and the team hopes the application will work at reducing health problems.

Our team was headed by a student who is a Microsoft certified technology specialist; nominee, best use of technology of the 2009 Nigeria Future Award; and he was the winner of Innovator of the year Award by Under 30 Achievers Award.”
