As the Rwandans joined the rest of the world to celebrate International Women’s Day, babyl, an innovative digital healthcare service providing access to doctors through mobile phones, using either the feature phones or the smart phones, has initiated a project that will benefit women from Nyamirambo Women’s Center in Kigali and those in the City Market through a gift of access to quality healthcare.

babyl is gifting the hard working women of the famed Nyamirambo Women’s Center with free access to babyl’s digital healthcare platform for a whole year.

This will allow the women to access quality nurses and doctors for non-emergency medical cases from their phone so they do not have to take long time and distance to reach the health facilities.

“We know that if women can access timely and affordable healthcare, they can work, become economic activators, support themselves and their families and improve their daily lives,” stated Tracey McNeill, CEO babyl Rwanda.

babyl has also set-up a booth in Kigali’s City Market for a week that will allow women in the vicinity who need medical consultations to access the babyl doctors via video at no cost to them.

On a national platform, babyl is also offered women across the country with free consultations all day on International Women’s Day i.e. Wednesday 8th March 2017.

‘Today is a day to celebrate women and our Rwanda team wants to make a small contribution to an important day.’ stated McNeil.

Babyl has been active in Rwanda since September 2016 and has registered over 300,000 users across the country who use the service to seek medical consultations for non-emergency cases from their phone in order to access qualified nurses and doctors to save time.

To register, simply dial *811# and follow the instructions.

You can also call the call center on 8111.
