Baobab Circle & Equity Bank
Baobab Circle’s Afya Pap is a patient centered platform that leverages AI and behavioral science to improve management and prevention of chronic health conditions such as diabetes and hypertension. The solution provides localized health education and personalized remote monitoring via SMS or an app. Afya Pap enables even the most remote patient to be monitored via its Ask a Doctor feature, with doctors responding in real-time, or by using the connected glucometers and blood pressure monitors. During the pandemic, Afya Pap is supporting at-risk patients by providing personalized health education, remote monitoring, e-prescriptions, COVID-19 symptom triage and tracking, and connections with doctors. Baobab Circle is working with Equity Bank in Uganda to pilot Afya Pap to support its staff to improve management and prevention of diabetes and hypertension, to increase worker productivity, and to reduce insurance costs related to treating chronic diseases.
