If you’re regularly on Twitter, chances are you’ve at least run into a tweet by the ‘Aproko Doctor’. His tweets are often about health matters: the importance of exercise, eating healthy, avoiding late-night snaking, first aid tips, and other health management advice.
He’s been a hit on that platform. Not many Nigerians there—let alone medical doctors –can boast a following of over 1,000,000 people.

He says he began sharing health and wellness tips on digital channels after realizing that many Nigerians were suffering ailments that they could have avoided if they simply lived healthier lives. While Nonso Egemba was a medical student at the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, he encountered numerous patients who fit this category.
Dr. Egemba believed that he could help change this situation by reaching out to people on social media—because it was the easiest way to connect with a large segment of the Nigerian populace.

But the impact of his work extends beyond the tips he drops on social media. He’s launched the 100K Club, which aims to have 100,000 people set aside at least ₦500 every month to help indigent Nigerians pay their medical bills.
