The world marked the World Health Day on 7th April to celebrate the progress being made in health care in countries across the world.
As much as the statistics from the World Health Organisation shows that millions of people still have no access at all to health care and millions more are forced to choose between health care and other daily expenses such as food, clothing and even a home, we still can’t turn a blind eye to the fact that innovation such as telemedicine, e-health, m-health has revolutionized the healthcare sector
In line with this, our upcoming After Office Hours session will focus on health and innovation. The session will be held at our Kilimani Office Space, on 7th Floor at Pinetree Plaza from 6pm by Tony Wood, Managing Director, Managing Director at ION Kenya, the company that operates the MYDAWA brand.
MYDAWA is a revolutionary e-health solution that ensures quality health care products are delivered to consumers at an affordable price and are consistently available to consumers, conveniently and with privacy, all from the palm of their hand.
Consumers can pay through Mobile Money or Health Insurance and have their products, delivered securely and free of charge to a place of your convenience where they can collect at a time that fits their schedule.
Most importantly, they can be confident of the quality of our products because they will be able to authenticate every pack through our globally unique authentication solution. This is all achieved through simplification and security within the supply chain.
