Join Our Team
At Maisha Meds, we believe all patients have a right to appropriate and effective healthcare. Across sub-Saharan Africa, over 60% of patients visit private pharmacies as their first point to access health care, yet they remain largely separate from and unrecognized by the health system, lacking the technology, data, and support to make the highest quality healthcare widely accessible.
Maisha Meds develops technology solutions that leverage the pharmacy point of sale to increase visibility up and down medication supply chains and ensure evidence-based care. Better information and insight enables pharmacies, suppliers, and medication manufacturers to track inventories, forecast drug demand, purchase quality medicines, and provide patient follow-up and advice. You will be joining a small, enthusiastic team of 10 as we scale from 70 pharmacies currently to hundreds in the next year, supporting hundreds of thousands of patient encounters. As such, you’ll have the opportunity to make a large and visible impact on our company and the autonomy to build a program to thrive at scale.
Maisha Meds began as a multidisciplinary team at Stanford University that is passionate about supporting the health sector in East Africa. We launched a pilot Android application in 2015 for pharmacies and chemist shops, and incorporated our 501(c)3 non-profit in the US in 2016. Our team is based in Kenya and has funding from Stanford University’s Biodesign Program and Center for Innovation in Global Health as well as D-Prize, the Unreasonable Institute in East Africa, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Merck’s Digital eHealth Accelerator in Nairobi, GIZ, and the Dioraphte Foundation.
We are looking for exceptional, committed individuals to work with us to transform health care delivery in Kenya and across the continent.
