Heeple is dedicated to exploring the feasibility of introducing digital health solutions in developing countries. Our focus is to improve the conditions of people suffering from hypertension and diabetes.Our journey begins with a series of educational trips to India, that will allow us to gain a deeper understanding of the major challenges and establish partnerships with local organisations.
In the world’s poorest countries, it is rarely possible to be diagnosedor receive treatment for life-threatening diseases. Millions of people die each year due to the lack of or inadequate help. Heeple wish to address these challenges. By using digital health solutions, we aim to empower people in rural India to manage their diseases by treating them more efficiently.
In 2017 Heeple will initiate its activities with an educational trip to India starting on March 23rd. The purpose of the trip is to visit villages around the cities of Latur, Aurangabad and Hyderabad, with a focus on exploring the feasibility of digital solutions targeting high blood pressure and diabetes– two diseases with an explosive development in India. A larger delegation of doctors from Denmark, Italy, Belgium and the US, will join Heeple on this trip. The trip is organised in collaboration with a local Indian partner – Rural Health Progress Trust – and with high involvement from diseased people in India.
