Funmi: Glad you’re well, Spiffy. Our mission is to make quality affordable healthcare a reality for millions of people in the world especially in Africa and Low Middle-Income Countries. We are enabling thousands of patients across the world to sign-up for real-time consultations, get access to genuine medications, diagnostics, referrals, follow-up, and home delivery of medications. Our interventions address shortages of doctors, exposure to counterfeit medicines, long-distance and ease the pressure on hospitals. Our doctors are board-certified multilingual medical experts across the US, UK, Europe, Israel, Nigeria, and other carefully selected countries. Telemedicine offers a unique opportunity for Africa and other developing countries to leapfrog their health care challenges and attain Universal Health Coverage.
Oliver: UncoverED is all about teaching medics about social problems: what they are, why they occur, and how we can fight them through our medical practice. For example: why is there a higher incidence of cervical cancer among lesbians? Why are Black women twice as likely to have stillbirths, compared to White women? These issues are being increasingly recognized in healthcare as, not only an important determinant of patient outcomes in healthcare but, for some groups, the single most important factor.
Córa-Laine: I support survivors of abuse and young people suffering from poor mental health. Young victims of abuse and those suffering from poor mental health are less likely to secure good grades at school and are more likely to find themselves in dangerous situations. So I support them as they rediscover their confidence and self-esteem, by providing creative projects, peer mentoring, and fundraising support as a Student Ambassador for the charity Safeline in the United Kingdom.
