Sehat Kahani is focused on two major health challenges in Pakistan of supply and demand by providing a reliable digital demand chain for healthcare service and products to the more than half impoverished population of Pakistan and a digital supply chain by creating more work opportunities for female doctors in the country.
The solution promotes employment opportunities for the female health workforce whilst advancing services for healthcare through telemedicine across Pakistan.
Sehat Kahani connects a network of predominantly female health professionals to patients who need quality, affordable, and accessible healthcare by using a one-stop shop telemedicine application that allows real-time and instant chat/audio/video doctor consultations, e-diagnostics, e-pharmacy, and health counselling within a few clicks. Sehat Kahani has created brick-and-mortar e-clinics across rural areas where nurse intermediaries connect walk-in patients to online doctors, specialists and mental wellness experts.
Creating a strong base of 7.2 million users using Sehat Kahani's solution nationwide. Sehat Kahani envisions growing into markets such as Bangladesh, Nepal, and Sri Lanka as well as areas of Africa and Latin America. Sehat Kahani is in the process of establishing strong Public Private Partnerships with government, non-government entities, insurance companies, banks, telecoms, existing telemedicine enterprises, and doctor networks to ensure a strong collaborative ecosystem in which its operations can expand.
