About the sponsor


Intelehealth is a non-profit organisation delivering high-quality healthcare where there are no doctors via telemedicine. Using its open-source technology platform, driven by an innovative digital health assistant, Intelehealth connects patients and frontline health workers at the last mile with doctors, diagnostics, and medications. Intelehealth is on track to provide healthcare for 10 million women over the next three years. To date, Intelehealth has enabled over 1 Million+ consultations, supported 3000+ frontline health workers and 950+ doctors. Our programs have resulted in 60% reduction in personal expenses for rural populations and improved capacity and skill development for the frontline health workforce.


Organisations using Intelehealth save their beneficiaries $10.50 (combining direct costs and indirect costs of accessing primary care), 3.4 km in the distance travelled and 6.5 hours per health event, resulting in:

  • >70% reduction in distance travelled and 75% in time taken to access primary care as well as a reduction of around 60% in the average time taken to access basic care.
