Primary Healthcare Clinics
Access Afya has a standardized clinic in a box model that delivers chronic care, family planning, lab testing, child immunizations and nutrition, pre and post-natal care, general outpatient consultations, first aid and more. Our asset-light clinics are located in convenient spaces and open every day of the week. We provide a range of health financing options including insurance, health micro-loans, savings and memberships.
Our pharmacies create a safe first entry point into the health system with qualified staff, genuine medication and sound health advice. Patients connect via telemedicine to our clinics when needed and have a range of services and rapid tests available to them. Pharmacies save patients who do not need clinics time.
We push the boundaries of classic clinical care into factories, schools and other places where our patients spend their time. Field care is a convenient, efficient way to distribute basic health services and screening, along with education and prevention.
Access Afya Analytics
Access Afya runs fully digital clinics and health programs. We collect demographic, health and history, encounter, diagnosis, treatment, purchasing and outcomes data. We also have operational data flowing through from all of our systems. Our tools can help others improve their operations and quality and our data help others understand our market.
50% of the world’s population lives on less than $5.50 per day
The world is urbanizing at an unprecedented rate. The growth in megacities means more people are moving to highly populated, often unsanitary, slum environments. Whilst many of these people live on an economic razor’s edge they are like any of us, willing to do whatever it takes to protect and care for their families.
They are willing to spend on health but what they lack is fast access to affordable, quality healthcare to keep them and their families active participants in their growing economies. While the global health community has made some inroads in physical access, effective healthcare that meets quality standards is still lacking.
Access Afya is disruptively creating affordable primary care access that delivers on quality for every patient, every time.
