1 A new approach to healthcare,
in Africa

2 Pesinet : introduction
Pesinet is a French non-profit, founded in September 2007 Our mission : prevent child and maternal mortality related to complications of benign children diseases Our solution : an affordable mobile health proximity service, provided by women for women of their communities Pierre

3 The idea

4 An endemic child mortality
1 child out of 5 does not reach the age of 5 in Mali HIV/AIDS Injuries Neo-natal diseases Diarrheal diseases Malaria Measles Respiratory diseases 70% 30% Mortality causes % = 80% reduction 70% des décès sont liés aux complications de pathologies bénignes Ces maladies seraient très facilement détectables avec un suivi régulier de données élémentaires Ces maladies peuvent facilement être soignées avec le personnel et les traitements disponibles localement Source WHO, data on Mali

5 The doctor is often the last solution
Conventional medicine is perceived as unaffordable ❝  Before, when our child was suffering from a benign disease, we weren’t going to the doctor and we were using auto-medication by fear to have to go to the hospital where examinations and treatments are really expensive. But with Pesinet it now becomes affordable and easy  ❞ Ms. Coulibaly Ouedrago Fanta, Pesinet subscriber Automedication and traditional medicine are common alternatives to the doctor >> Medical aberration: treatment and staff are available locally >> Economical paradox: prevention is much cheaper than late treatment

6 A unique package of healthcare services Une offre de services unique
