Imagine, 90 per of citizens in Sub-Sahara Africa do not have a primary care doctor! One-third self-prescribe, rush to the closest retail pharmacy or visit the neighborhood clinic where misdiagnoses are common. The 2nd third visits hospital or private doctor’s office. Inconvenience, transit time, long wait times, and 30-40% more costly labs and meds are undesirable experiences. The last third simply defer care. Common illnesses – cough, diarrhea, fever, hypertension, diabetes, joint pain, dysfunctional bleeding, skin infections in children — worsen. COVID-testing is not accessible. The most affected are blue-collar workers, who are further constrained by long workdays and low pay, making urban setting the hot beds for health disparities. CheckUps is the people’s choice.
