Micro health insurance for $1-a-month delivered by a tech-enabled network of health providers


PROBLEM

Across Africa, 70% of people are paying out of pocket for their healthcare, which leads to a delay in accessing care and in turn has huge ramifications on public health. Hundreds of thousands of people in sub-Saharan Africa die of malaria each year and although tests to detect the disease can lead to effective treatment, most never get tested because it’s too expensive and they have no insurance.

SOLUTION

Wellahealth provides affordable access to high-quality healthcare, leveraging innovative financing options such as micro-insurance options at very low monthly costs that can cover a majority of a person’s health needs. Wellahealth uses a technology infrastructure to connect payers to a quality assured network of healthcare providers across Africa.
