Ilara Health (Ilara) is a secure digital platform (web/mobile app) that brings diagnostic support and essential tests to small medical providers across peri-urban sub-Saharan Africa who currently are unable to access these basic life-saving tools. It offers flexible financing (pay as you go) to make this tech affordable to providers in low-resource settings. Its ‘COVID-19 readiness package’ for symptom checking will help identify patients who are most susceptible to serious COVID-19 complications and can play a crucial role in patient triage at the primary care level.
