I am seeking for various health professionals and specialists who may be interested to connect with African patients from their mobile device to provide health advice regarding a variety of health topics via "YAPILI" (telehealth startup). We are currently developing a branch of our service targeting mental health, so if you have any ideas or thoughts to share about how digital implementation can/cannot impact mental health in Kenya - let's get in touch!
My name is Enya and I am the CEO of YAPILI: a telehealth solution that provides new opportunities to access healthcare. In the societies where public health facilities and medical expertise can be scarce, costly and hard to reach, YAPILI enables confidential contact with local and international health care professionals. Fields of expertise include; pregnancy & family planning, diabetes, hypertension, HIV, sexual health, mental health and generic primary care. YAPILI users can either be individuals or families in Africa seeking health advice, patients seeking support regarding chronic illnesses, community-health-workers seeking information and advice from a doctor, and health practitioners across Africa seeking advice from specialists anywhere in the world.
Users can access the service via the website or via the YAPILI app on their smartphone. YAPILI launched a year ago as a pilot in 9 African countries: Botswana, Kenya, Nigeria, Rwanda, Tanzania, South Africa, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe
Our slogan “Health@Hand” implies the usage of a hand-held device with internet access, enabling those seeking advice to obtain high quality health advice at the tip of a finger instantly. Global as a concept, YAPILI is meant to serve populations with a low density of doctors and medical expertise. Our mHealth solution leverages the increasing use of mobile technology and connectivity across African countries, in order to empower the end users and to enhance access to healthcare. It is the only peer-to-peer health platform with integrated health records and one of the very first legal frameworks defined for cross-border health advice and data privacy.
