Short description

It's a social health platform connecting people, patients and caregivers alike, through online support communities.

Description

Sub-Saharan Africa has about 15% of the world’s people but it carries 24% of the global disease burden in human and financial costs. Almost half the world’s deaths of children under five take place in Africa.

There is a lack of aggregated big data on holistic health that considers the realities of sub-Saharan Africa.

Healthcare is a balance between a top down and bottom up approach kind of system.

Patients ought to be active partners in managing their conditions rather than passive recipients of care so a multifaceted approach where clinicians and non-clinicians from multiple disciplines connect and work very closely together is needed.

Members share their personal stories, experiences and perspectives in these safe spaces.

The aim is to raise and spread awareness on the real-time nature of disease like Covid-19 and promote healthier lifestyle habits and practices through honest conversations and health fellowships.

Disease is dynamic so knowing patients’ in-depth history and current reality would greatly help the medical fraternity better understand, evolve and come up with holistic ways and means of prevention, treatment and management.
.
As a data-driven advocacy platform, we strive to identify from the diverse perspectives common patterns that could possibly lead to cheaper, long term healthier and nature friendly remedies and solutions.

Our value proposition is to shift and transform our healthcare from a reactive based system to a more proactive and predictive one which leverages machine learning data algorithms and artificial intelligence to not only stratify and prevent at-risk individuals from the onset of symptoms let alone disease but also predict risk and intervene further upstream.

What we are building is cross-cultural communities that are beyond race, gender, occupation or religion thereby fostering global peace, love and unity, and in the process elevating our universal emotional intelligence, empathy and consciousness. To live in a world in tune with nature and itself.
