With more than 16million people actively using Facebook in Nigeria monthly, we believe Facebook bot can help combat fake
products in the marketplace. As part of the Sustainable Development Goals, which is to ensure healthy lives and promote
well-being for all at all age, we developed VeriBot, a Facebook bot medicine verification application that can easily
and effectively identify fake drugs, as well as expired drugs before consumers even leave the pharmacy.
With our authentication application, consumers can simply chat with the bot, scratch the label on the
packaging of the drug and input the set of unique numbers to verify if a medicine is authentic or not.
In response, the bot notifies the customers immediately whether or not a drug is legitimate or not; It prompts you with
the expiring date of the drug. If a fake product is found, the consumer current location is collected immediately and a
hotline number to call pops up on the customer's phone in order to report the fake product to the appropriate authorities
