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.

See how M-TIBA is growing in Kenya.
