Core Offerings
Healthy Entrepreneurs engages existing rural community health workers in a sustainable business by providing them access to low-cost, high-quality branded generics and other health commodities. The business is driven by a tightly-controlled supply chain that reduces mark-ups and allows entrepreneurs to sell high-quality products at a lower cost than currently available in rural areas and still retain a margin on each sale. Entrepreneurs use low-cost smartphones to manage their business and reordering, provide access to telemedicine services to their customers with a focus on screening and treatment, and give Healthy Entrepreneurs, its funders, and governments real-time visibility to the flow of information, services, and products in rural areas.
