Uber for On-Demand Primary Healthcare in Africa.

PROBLEM

Primary healthcare is the foundation of health in many African countries, yet 60% of Africans cannot access care. Approximately 11M people fall into poverty yearly due to a lack of health insurance, rising cost of out-of-pocket spending, inaccessibility (distance and associated costs), poor infrastructure, government underspending in the health sector, and low health worker capacity. As a result, Africans are unable to make informed decisions as it pertains to their health.

SOLUTION

Clafiya is a digital primary healthcare service that connects individuals and businesses to health practitioners to provide convenient, quality, and affordable, on-demand primary care from their mobile phones. For Patients: with a combination of offline and online products, patients can connect to the nearest registered Health Practitioner to administer on-demand primary care services. Health Practitioners: they generate an income for each patient they visit.

TEAM

Jennie Nwokoye

Itoro Inoyo

Clafiya is led by two women with a combined 15 years of experience in engineering and global public health. We've experienced the impact of not being able to access primary care in Nigeria, either by losing a family member or a friend. These experiences have informed our decisions to pursue certain careers and ultimately, build Clafiya.
