This means Bayer will support M-TIBA in executing partnership deals in the digital health space.
Bayer G4A (formerly known as Grants4Apps) launched in Berlin in 2013, collaborates with startups and healthcare technology companies across the world that are developing innovative solutions in healthcare.
PharmAccess Foundation deployed M-TIBA for registrations on universal health coverage pilots for three of four pilot counties in Kenya (Kisumu, Nyeri and Machakos).
“We were amazed by the growing maturity of digital health startups and had to make some very tough decisions. We are excited to jointly develop and scale new digital solutions that will help change the accessibility of health for our patients and consumers,” says Eugene Borukhovich, Head of Digital Health at Bayer.
The M-TIBA platform has been developed by CarePay, in partnership with Safaricom and PharmAccess Foundation.
The platform enables governments, insurers and donors to distribute and manage health benefits efficiently and transparently.
To date, there are over four million lives enrolled on M-TIBA and more than 2,000 healthcare facilities connected onto the platform.
