Queen of Netherlands visits Lagos hospital

Queem Maxima of the Netherlands

Queen Maxima of the Netherlands on Tuesday paid a visit to Subol Hospital in Ikotun, Lagos, where she met excited children and their mother.

The mother-of-three was visiting the hospital in order to learn more about access to health insurance available to locals from platform PharmAccess.

But before official proceedings started, a typically charismatic Maxima spent time chatting to patients in the waiting rooms.

Always one to make a style statement, Maxima, 46, wore an elegant canary yellow dress for her engagement and appeared particularly charmed by three young triplet boys who appeared fascinated by her.

The Argentinian-born royal opted for a few simple accessories to finish her outfit today in the form of beaded hoop earrings and several elegant bracelets.

After spending time with the patients at Subol, Maxima was introduced to staff members where she spent time learning about PharmAccess.

PharmAccess was founded in 2001 by Professor Joep Lange who brought life-saving AIDS treatment to those who needed it most.

Building on this work on the front lines of HIV/AIDS treatment, their focus has broadened to making healthcare finance and delivery more effective and more inclusive.

Maxima arrived Nigeria on Monday and her visit will focus on the possibilities for accelerating the process of improving access to financial services.
