Esprit

Esprit provides easy access to affordable healthcare and health insurance services in underserved emerging markets, anytime, anywhere, on your mobile phone
" Imagine a near-future scenario where people in emerging markets can seek health advice, arrange appointments and consultations with doctors and specialists, order medicines and pay for services over their mobile phone, even if separated from doctors, hospitals and clinics by hundreds of miles. " Deloitte Consulting, 2020 Global Healthcare Outlook.

Global Healthcare

The World Health Organisation (WHO) measures access to healthcare in terms of the number of medical doctors per 10,000 of population.

Latest statistics show that over 40% of WHO Member States report to have less than 10 medical doctors per 10,000 population. (over 26% report to have less than 3).

At least half of the world's population cannot obtain essential health services, according to a new report from the World Bank and WHO.

WHO

Millions of people in emerging markets are at high risk of illness or injury daily due to the shortage of doctors and poor public health services. Access to healthcare is often limited and few have health insurance.

Many people forgo healthcare and insurance due to perceived high costs. Often, they need to travel considerable distances and endure lengthy waiting times to see a doctor. Few have health insurance cover for sickness, personal accidents, catastrophic events and family funerals.

We provide access to our m-Health platform both direct to the consumer and in partnership with Mobile Network Operators (MNOs), Fintech, Insuretech, and healthcare providers, via the digital mobile network.

How it Works

mHealth is defined as the "delivery of primary healthcare via the digital mobile phone network" Deloitte Consulting

Following the success of m-Wallet (mobile money), primary healthcare is thought to be the most promising new mobile growth channel in global emerging markets.

Mobile phones have become almost ubiquitous in emerging markets in Africa, due to the significant rural populations and considerable distances between them and the nearest cities.

Mobile phones are increasingly being used to access new consumer applications and services via m-Wallet (mobile money). Examples include micro-finance (fintech) and micro-insurance (insuretech).

Esprit can be accessed via our App, m-Wallet, WhatsApp or direct online using a laptop computer or tablet.

Esprit is launching its m-Health service in Kenya with other markets coming soon.
