Our Pitch - Vote for Penda Health on Pitch-It!
Penda Health is building a chain of high quality clinics offering Kenyan women and their families affordable care. Middle/low income Kenya spends $1.2B a year on outpatient healthcare, growing at 8%/year, yet is ignored by the current healthcare system.
Penda offers outpatient services to low and middle income Kenyan women and their families. This is a market that typically spends $1.2B per year on OP services, growing at 8% a year. However, their current options, including public hospital and single-provider hospitalis, are often unreliable, have 1-2 day wait times and employ over-worked and/or under-qualified doctors (who may not have licenses to practice). These environments often lead to mis-diagnoses and are associated with general stigma, leading individuals to put off healthcare. By offering reliable, affordable, friendly and quality care, Penda will attract significant market share, unlock tremendous value, and improve the general productivity of the lower and middle classes, thereby adding tremendous social value to Kenyan society.
