Project Description

PharmAccess is an international NGO headquartered in Amsterdam and offices in Sub-Sahara Africa (Kenya, Tanzania, Ghana and Nigeria) that aims at improving access to better quality care through loans for health SME's, quality standards and health insurance using mobile and digital technology.

The project aims to support healthcare providers, patients, and the local government in Ghana, with the current Covid-19 response and to ensure that the implemented processes and technologies stay in place post-Covid-19.

FMO- NLB's support will assist PhamAccess in implementing and rolling out the Covid-19 Monitor in Ghana, as the first African country to help reducing the spread of the virus and preparing the healthcare system and local authorities to better handle the COVID-19 response. The FMO development capital contribution of EUR 258,781 represents 50% of the investment required to introduce the COVID-19 Monitor as was developed by Luscii Healthtech B.V. and was in the Netherlands made available by OLVG, to Ghana where a remote care centre will be established and the solution will be made available for a USSD feature phone. After successful implementation in Ghana, it will also be made available to other countries such as Nigeria and Kenya.
