"Healthcare is a right for every single person, rich or poor. And yet one billion people will go to their graves prematurely never having seen a healthcare official. At Health eVillages, we are not here to delay death, we are here to extend life."– Donato Tramuto, Founder, Health eVillages
Founded in 2011, Health eVillages aims to address the fact that within our lifetimes, one billion people will go to their graves without ever having access to health care workers, medication, clean water or affordable health facilities. Health eVillages collaborates to advance health care access and improve the quality of care by providing state-of-the-art mobile health technology including medical reference and clinical decision support tools, as well as other community-focused resources, to medical and public health professionals in the most challenging clinical environments around the world.
Initially, Health eVillages launched pilots in Kenya, Uganda and Haiti. The impact was immediately realized as initial reports from doctors and nurses showed they were using the technology and medical apps to make informed, life-saving decisions.
With the support of Tivity Health, the Tramuto Foundation, Sharecare, Linkwell Health, and Isobar, Health eVillages has since expanded into eleven countries and deployed 585+ content-enabled mobile devices worldwide.
It is our belief that by delivering technology, facilitating access and empowering health care providers, we can help “heal the villages” and move the needle on global health care.
