An online platform for insurance, telemedicine, doctor house calls, and pharmacy services

PROBLEM

The Nigerian health care system is in shambles, rife with fraudulent doctors and counterfeit medications and less than 5% of Nigerians have health insurance. Those who cannot afford private care seek treatment from different facilities that are either poor-quality (public facilities), prohibitively expensive (private HMOs) or limited in coverage (telemedicine platforms).

SOLUTION

A user-friendly app that connects patients to low-cost health plans, medications  and doctors. With only a phone and an internet connection, users can have access to a team of over 5,000 medical professionals spread across the country. CribMD aims to improve access to high-quality, low-cost care in Nigeria, and reduce financial instability due to health debt.
