Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Africa Health Holdings has become a beacon in the healthcare sector. AHH did not delay in instituting strict safety protocols, including a work-from-home program for office staff, providing training to office and health facility staff on how to protect themselves from the virus, and supporting its brands in acquiring much-needed PPE (Personal Protective Equipment). These measures have been instrumental in keeping both patients and staff safe, while allowing operations to run, and patients to continue receiving much-needed care.
In response to the challenges in accessing healthcare facilities created by COVID-19 and social distancing protocols, the AHH telemedicine platform offers remote access to healthcare services during this global crisis. Whereas many businesses faced supply chain disruption due to COVID-19, AHH’s emergency preparedness greatly reduced the impact of this disruption.
As COVID-19 vaccines have become available, AHH has continued to encourage and support its staff in all jurisdictions to get vaccinated, with 46% of staff receiving at least one dose of a vaccine. AHH brands in Kenya, Ghana, and Nigeria have been at the forefront of offering free COVID-19 vaccination services to the public by partnering with their respective governments and Ministries of Health.
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Africa Health Holdings has continued to demonstrate its resilience and remains a leading contributor to the development and success of Africa’s present and the future healthcare system.
