Wellahealth is a health technology startup. Their goal is to provide affordable and accessible, high-quality healthcare protection for all Africans. WellaHealth’s first product provided affordable access to malaria insurance in Nigeria.
100,000 people die from malaria in Nigeria, and 50% of Nigeria’s 190 million population will have an episode of malaria, each year. The cost of quality treatment is prohibitive for many, between $10 - $15 per episode, while late treatment risks complications and death. Wellahealth’s malaria microinsurance costs as little as $0.04 per day, and covers testing, treatment and follow-up.
WellaHealth runs their health care program in partnership with Axa Mansard, one of the largest insurers in the world, and now offer three types of care-plan. They also provide pharmaceutical care software to manage patient relationships for pharmacies.
Wellahealth is looking to partner with Mobile Network Operators and insurance companies across Africa.
