Who We Are
Wekebere is a social enterprise startup company in the global health space. We work to create affordable and sustainable healthcare solutions to combat maternal and infant mortality in the developing world. We believe that all communities deserve cutting edge health technology, especially in low-income countries where the strain on resources and challenges accessing quality healthcare puts vulnerable patients at risk.
Our ultimate goal is to reduce maternal mortality but also to reduce the number of infant deaths related to pregnancy.
To be the leading the leading producer of fetal monitoring devices in Africa at affordable prices, where quality and safety are a constant.
To contribute to a healthy community by integrating preventive and diagnostic service delivery in order to complete the health management system for vulnerable rural women and children.
- To promote the provision of quality health care services.
- To strengthen the health care system.
- To increase access to quality palliative care and cancer services for women.
- To advocate for rural women and children health rights.
Wekebere has helped restore the trust and confidence of mothers on us whenever we engage, to an extent that now small children from the community help us find the pregnant women in slum areas whenever they see us come with the kit!
Wekebere device is a dream kit for me. This has help improve our health worker’s performance and reduced our efforts for data collection and management.
I’ve been working for pregnant women in my area since 1990. The rise in number of institutional deliveries and average birth weight after Wekebere device has been tremendous!
My family and I heard my baby’s heartbeat for the first time even before she was born! Thank you Wekebere!
If it wasn’t for Wekebere, I would have never known I had low iron content in my blood and it can cause serious complications during delivery.
