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, and its brands in Egypt, Nigeria, Kenya, and Ghana 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.
