Our results

Access to healthcare is one of the biggest challenges in Kenya. Mobile health platform M-TIBA provides access to better healthcare for Kenyans by connecting people to clinics and healthcare funders through a mobile health wallet. M-TIBA enables people to receive funds, to save, and pay for medical treatment at clinics, directly trough their mobile phone.
