After the success of the different ongoing initiatives on the African continent, iValueHealth.NET takes a step forward expanding its Social Health Network to Angola.
Thanks to the recent partnership with Calapamar SL, a consulting firm in the field of Public Health in Angola, iValueHealth.NET will provide both online and mobile health services to the citizens of Angola, through B2B2C solutions, joining both public and private initiatives.
A portfolio of specific programs (such as Malaria, Dengue fever, Trypanosomiasis, Cholera or Typhus, etc.) will be integrated within the Social Health Platform so that the entire community benefits from them. This solution can contribute to increasing awareness for users and, at the same time, provide a holistic view to healthcare actors, including public bodies.
"Continuing our mission to increase access to healthcare for everyone, we have developed specific programs for Angola, in Portuguese language, which will allow citizens to receive health tips and get in touch with medical professionals, among other services" stated Sergio Lozano, Director at iValueHealth.NET.
"The public institutions in Angola are making great efforts to cope with the needs of the population in the field of health. Through our collaboration with iValueHealth.NET, we want to raise health awareness, bring together various existing initiatives and encourage new ones, and promote adherence to various programs tackling very important conditions in the country" said Carlos Gaspar, CEO of Calapamar.
Through this partnership, iValueHealth.NET and Calapamar will join forces, both at institutional and private level, using technology to approach two closely linked domains - health and mobile communications. Different channels such as internet, SMS, mobile application, USSD or IVR, will be deployed progressively to provide access to health information for everyone and enable people to actively manage their own health.
