In a health crisis like the COVID-19 outbreak, ensuring that vaccines and other lifesaving medicines are reaching their beneficiaries is critical. To stop a disease spreading, you need to diagnose people rapidly and accurately, and track others who they’ve contacted. But more than 1B people globally lack legal identification, and these people are less likely to be able to access health services, less likely to know their disease status, and, ultimately, more likely to pass the disease to others.
Simprints's mission is to transform the way the world fights poverty. We build technology to radically increase transparency and effectiveness in global development, making sure that every vaccine, every dollar, every public good reaches the people who need them most. Simprints' technology ensures that health workers in the last mile are able to reach real patients, tracking cases over time and geography, and ensuring equitable delivery of vaccines and medical services in last mile settings.
