We believe that everyone should be entitled to medical and health services. The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal 3 includes the effort to reduce the global maternal mortality ratio, end preventable deaths of newborns, end the epidemics of AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria and reduce premature mortality from noncommunicable diseases. Impact Go wants to contribute to reach these targets by providing more people with high quality medicine and health services.
In Africa, it is exactly the same with hospitals as it is in Europe: the public hospitals are all located in the larger cities. In Africa’s rural areas, where the majority of the poorer population lives, there are mainly private clinics available only to those who either pay higher sums or have private insurance. Impact Go focuses on these rural populations that need it the most. They often can not afford expensive journeys to public hospitals in the cities. On top these public hospitals don’t offer quality health care anyway. Private clinics can offer qualified staff and standardized medicine. Learn more here about Tanzania’s healthcare system.
