Innovating to provide drug rehab services during Covid-19

Necessity is truly the mother of invention. The Secretariat for MenEngage Nigeria, Society for the Improvement of Rural People (SIRP-Nigeria), has had to innovate to continue providing rehabilitative services to people with drug addiction. With Nigeria being one of many countries that have ordered movement restrictions on citizens in a bid to curtail the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic, the organisation has had to provide services remotely. To hear more about this, MenEngage Africa Communications & Media Specialist, Khopotso Bodibe, spoke with SIRP-Nigeria’s Executive Director, Dr Chris Ugwu.
