Digital platform for coordinating health services, medicine delivery and insurance in rural areas
Reach52’s approach addresses primary healthcare access across a broad range of conditions and illnesses among remote populations, with specific focus on: communicable disease; non-communicable disease; maternal and child health. They also work to address cross-cutting issues of out-of-pocket payments and access to medicines. This is accomplished through use of community-integrated peer worker networks; innovative supply-chain management strategies; and our offline-first mHealth platform. As a result, reach52 provides a last-mile extension of centralised healthcare infrastructure: maximising the efficiency of government primary care clinics and filling gaps with affordable private sector products to combat the traditional barriers of physical and financial healthcare access. This includes enabling ‘last-mile’ availability of affordable medicines; micro-insurance, OTC products; and screening/diagnostic services.
Their model enables a precision, data driven localised approach, which sees unique targeted interventions developed for each partner-community.

This is enabled by their leading edge, offline-capable digital health tools.
