Kenyans with chronic illnesses can now procure drugs from across the globe online, thanks to a digital health company which has now expanded its operations into the Country.
The firm, Wellahealth, announced it has expanded its Healthsend Africa platform, through which Kenyans can buy medicines from around the world and have them delivered to their doorstep.
The company says it will support the procurement of authentic medications for all chronic illnesses, such as cancer, diabetes, heart, kidney and other ailments for now.
The company said the platform streamlines the process of transferring funds to cover medical expenses, guaranteeing complete transparency in fund utilization which in turn, simplifies healthcare management for families separated by geographical distances.
“I am excited to announce that we are launching our Healthsend product in Kenya. This is a testament to our commitment to bring healthcare to the doorsteps of every African,” said Dr Neto Ikpeme, Wellahealth’s CEO.
“I built this product to solve the problem of accessing quality medicine and care for my family. I am glad to extend this to many families abroad with families back home in Kenya and the rest of Africa”. He added.
The expansion of Healthsend by Wellahealth into Kenya, Uganda and the rest of Africa, led by Joseph Okoroafor, Healthsend’s product owner and growth marketing executive, comes after a successful rollout in Nigeria, where the platform has garnered significant praise for its innovation and impact.
Through its innovative platform, Healthsend Africa, the company will connect individuals living abroad with healthcare services for their family members in Kenya, ensuring that distance is no longer a barrier to quality healthcare.
Wellahealth was founded in Nigeria, where it has made a success as a health technology firm providing affordable, accessible, high-quality healthcare protection.
Other services provided through its Healthsend Africa platform, such as the arrangement of doctor appointments, accessing health insurance products and the remote monitoring of health conditions, will be added in the coming months.
