2 Kenyan e-health startups secure grants from Villgro

After backing two Ugandan companies earlier this year, Villgro has now provided grants to #MCNalum Maisha Meds, a software platform for ensuring that rural pharmacists and clinicians effectively purchase quality affordable medicines and pass on subsidies to patients, received US$40,000, which comes with mentorship and technical expertise to develop its business model and scale.

Maisha Meds chief executive officer (CEO) Jessica Vernon expressed her excitement to join Villgro Kenya’s incubation programme.

“The mission of Maisha Meds is to develop systems to improve access to high quality and affordable medicines. We are incredibly excited to work with Villgro in this mission, and have heard wonderful things about the support that Villgro provides companies working to scale health technologies in East Africa,” she said.
