At Maisha Meds, we believe all patients have a right to appropriate and effective healthcare. Across sub-Saharan Africa, private sector pharmacies play a major role in providing primary care, yet they remain largely separate from and unrecognized by the health system, lacking the technology, data, and support to make the highest quality healthcare widely accessible. Maisha Meds develops technology solutions that leverage the pharmacy point of sale to increase visibility up and down medication supply chains and ensure evidence-based care.
