With a mission to make prescription drugs affordable and accessible to emerging markets throughout Africa, mPharma is a venture-backed startup based in the Ghanaian city of Accra. They partner with major pharmaceutical manufacturers, insurance companies, financial institutions, and governments to enable patients with chronic conditions access to vital, yet affordable, medications.
Not only does mPharma manage prescription drug inventory for pharmacies and their suppliers in Ghana, Nigeria, Zambia and Zimbabwe, but the company is using its growing purchasing power to help lower the cost of prescription drugs for patients. By offering structured payment plans, patients can utilize credit to pay for their drugs when and where they need them while ensuring that medications are always in stock.
By lowering the costs of purchasing drugs, mPharma is enabling hospitals to invest money directly into new equipment and training staff while health insurance providers can reduce their reimbursement costs. This innovative startup is transforming the way prescription drugs are bought and sold across Africa while impacting the lives of thousands with chronic diseases.
