The Impilo Initiative Launches Telehealth Services to Women in South Africa

The state of healthcare for women and girls in South African communities is “desperately in need of improvement,” say those close to the matter at hand.

Those living in rural areas suffer from many issues that could be prevented with a little education of information delivered by a professional.

The good news is The Impilo Initiative is now here to help.

“The Impilo Initiative offers telemedicine services, something which many are calling the future of healthcare,” a provided statement reads. “A woman, mother or even child can, by the click of a button, be put in touch with a healthcare professional to have a face-to-face check up and be given quality guidance. With the incredible lack of access to medical care being experienced in South African rural communities, this will provide first-world health care without women having to leave their villages.”

“The Impilo Initiative was designed to combine three of my favourite things – healthcare, technology and empowering women,” commented Elizabeth van Rooyen, Founder of the non-profit organization. “Equipping these women with advanced digital healthcare and education will allow them to take responsibility for their health – a lack of which is the root of so many issues in third world countries.”
