S9: #086: Transforming Commercial Models and Health Outcomes in Africa and Asia

The topic:

There are over 1.2 billion people living in Africa, and another 1.3 billion living in India.  Together they account for about 34% of the world’s population.  These two regions represent some of the highest levels of healthcare burden, and some of the lowest numbers of healthcare professionals.

For example, in Africa, there are only 2.3 healthcare workers per 1,000 people.  Compare that to the Americas where you’ll find there are more than 10 times as many: 24.8 healthcare workers per 1000 people.

To look at it another way, Africa has a deficit of 2.4 million doctors and nurses - so if you’re looking for a place where you can have a really huge impact on a population in need, there are a few big targets for you in the 54 countries of Africa, in addition to another 1.3 billion people in India.

The guest:

In this episode I spoke to Emmanuel Blin.  Emmanuel is the founder and CEO of Tech Care for All (TC4A). He grew up in sub-Saharan Africa and he has a deep commitment to addressing the challenges and inequalities that are present there.

 

In 2017, after 20 years of service in the pharmaceutical industry, Emmanuel decided to invest his energy in changing health outcomes in the poorest corners of our world.  He created a for-profit, social impact company called Tech Care for All whose goal is to accelerate digital health in Africa and Asia as a key enabler to improving health outcomes in underserved communities.  His vision is to bridge the very best digital health innovation that’s happening across the U.S., Asia, Europe and Africa.  Emmanuel is a Digital Health and Social Impact Entrepreneur and he lives in Brussels with his wife and four children.
