President Clinton's praise for E-Team Sproxil: "A genuinely remarkable achievement"
Last year, Ashifi Gogo, former NCIIA E-Team grantee and founder of Sproxil, was awarded $10,000 by the Clinton Global Initiative University to develop his anti-counterfeit drug technology venture. On Thursday, Sept 23, he spoke at the 2010 Clinton Global Initiative, giving an update on Sproxil's work in Nigeria, where thousands of locals are signing up every month to use the mobile phone system to find out if their medicine is authentic or not.
President Clinton's reaction following Ashifi's update: "This is a genuinely remarkable accomplishment...(it's) empowering...putting people in charge of their own healthcare."
Watch Ashifi's presentation (introduction by President Clinton at 6:20).
