Just after extending its coverage area to Abuja, Lifebank has also expanded its services to cover another vital healthcare need.

The startup has launched a new service called AirBank, an emergency medical oxygen delivery service.

In Nigeria, about 177,000 children die annually from pneumonia, and at least 61,950 children can be saved annually by making oxygen readily available.

We worked so hard to figure out how to help our most vulnerable citizens, children under the age of 5! Now access to Oxygen is just one phone call away 24 hours and 7 days a week!

Pneumonia, an infection that inflames the air sacs in the lungs and limits oxygen intake is the highest killer of Nigerian children under 5.

This new service was born out of the desire that no child dies from the lack of oxygen in hospitals. According to the three-year-old startup, this new service is the quickest, most convenient, and most cost-effective way to order medical oxygen in cylinders.

Hospitals can request the blood they need, with the startup delivering the requested blood in less than 45 minutes, in a WHO Blood Transfusion Safety compliant cold chain.

This is the first in the string of essential medical products which the startup promised to be adding to its platform soon. Other medical products like vaccines and rare drugs will also soon be available via LifeBank.
