Connecting people to affordable healthcare

At PharmAccess, our vision is a world where everybody is connected to affordable healthcare through mobile technology. Mobile technology has disrupted virtually every industry. It has created transparent business models that drastically cut transaction costs while putting the end user at the center.

Crucially, a person with a mobile phone is a person with a voice. With a simple piece of technology in their hands, those who were typically excluded can participate in the types of services and exchanges that many of us take for granted. This is why PharmAccess believes that new digital platforms like M-TIBA hold the key to democratizing healthcare.

About PharmAccess

PharmAccess believes in doing healthcare better. With a focus on sub-Saharan Africa, we work on improving the whole system. This means mobilizing private and public resources to get more money into the system, measuring and improving quality, and reaching even the most excluded through simple technologies like the mobile phone.

This approach to healthcare is designed to ensure that everyone has access to better care when they need it, not just when they can afford it.
