The problem - dual-epidemics of TB and HIV/AIDS
The dual epidemics of TB and HIV/AIDS in Africa are stretching the capacity of national health systems, leaving millions undiagnosed and without care. Effective treatments exist, but too often do not reach those who need it most: the poorest Africans get most of their healthcare from sources outside of the national health services. Integrating private providers into public health initiatives is the only rapid way to reach the most vulnerable populations.
Healthspot’s solution- Franchise private providers
Healthspot is developing a network of franchised private providers to expand quality care for TB and HIV/AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa. Health franchising is a cost effective way to increase testing for TB and HIV and expand service delivery points. Healthspot's approach will improve quality, accessibility, and reliability of services and commodities for the poor.
