Q. Where can I find information regarding Nigeria's medical supplies? I am doing a research on whether Johnson & Johnson should do business there.
Regarding your question about Nigeria's medical supply, I did some searching in one of our Business databases, ABI/INFORM Complete (which can be found on our International Business Guide) and found that Nigeria actually publishes a quarterly industry report on Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare!
I found it originally by searching for - Nigeria AND health supply - and came up with many promising articles and reports.
Within this search I found that if you now search for - Nigeria Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare Report - you will get their quarterly reports. The 4th Quarter 2013 can be found at this link - https://ezproxy.uhd.edu/login?url=http://search.proquest.com/docview/1416917856?accountid=7109
To see reports for other quarters search for Nigeria Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare Report and the year you are interested in. To narrow down by quarter add "Q" and the quarter number to the search string.
This should give you the market forecasts, historical data, the industry SWOT, and even the competitive landscape for the industry.
If you need more information on Nigeria's Health Supply industry, I would recommend continuing a search in the ABI/INFORM Complete database using phrases such as:
Nigeria AND health supply
Nigeria AND pharmaceuticals
and more depending on what words you are finding that come up with useful looking results.
