TAREO NEED TO CREATE Informal Healthcare Providers (IHPs)

Earlier this year TAREO had presentation to Health Stakeholders in Tanzania mainly  outlined the importance of utilizing digital healthcare solutions and Informal Healthcare Providers (IHPs) to reach undeserved communities specific 75% of Tanzanians live in Rural are but with advantages of having mobile and smart phones..

IHPs are a primary source of healthcare in low- and middle- income countries, providing over-the-counter medicines and healthcare services to their customers. IHPs are a trusted and influential source of medical advice in their local communities. In Tanzania alone, numbers of IHPs are serving a population of more than 30m people.

TRANSFORM believes digital innovations such as telemedicine, E-Learning and eCommerce are promising opportunities to improve IHPs’ service delivery and can increase access to health services and products for hundreds of millions of people.

The health of people is dependent upon many factors, for example, on social and economic relations. Stable political systems are important conditions, just like living in good health, with clean water, good income, improvement of the rights of women, education, transportation facilities and respect of human rights; all these are important factors for the health of individuals and the population we consider.
