Project Apollo is democratising access to lifesaving medical devices by removing the burden of ownership. We believe that every healthcare provider on the African continent should have access to high-quality medical devices that allow them to serve more patients, treat more conditions and deliver better outcomes - all at an affordable price.
We also believe that healthcare providers should be able to focus their limited resources on providing care, not managing the complex lifecycle of medical devices.
Apollo enables healthcare providers to lease medical devices that are managed by independent experts. We are commencing a pilot for Apollo and are seeking to hire an Operations Lead to oversee the day to day running of the project Apollo pilot phase.
