Meet Unu

Hello. We are Unu. We do healthcare that makes you😀

Unu brings together the best in healthcare & health tech for the benefit of all, in one convenient app.

We come to work every day to extend Africa’s life expectancy by one year. And then, beyond.

Unu is a platform that disrupts how people access, pay for and experience primary healthcare. We believe that good health is at the heart of Africa’s productivity, prosperity and potential.

‍That’s why we’re on this journey

The facts that motivate us...

We learned

Africa’s life expectancy lags 10 years behind the global average.

We asked

How can we use technology to add just one more year of life as our starting point?

We learned

Our share of the global health spend is just 1%, yet we carry 25% of the world’s disease burden.

We asked

How can we connect the best in innovation and drive investment through one holistic platform?

We learned

95% of our people rely on state healthcare.

We asked

How can we help alleviate pressure on the state system by using tech to improve capacity?

If we increase life expectancy on
the continent by just one year...


Together we can increase GDP by 4%

This is our goal, because we know that without access to quality primary healthcare, individuals can’t thrive, businesses can’t grow, communities cannot flourish – and Africa cannot prosper.


Together we can improve quality of life, for longer

This is our goal, because we know that access to quality primary healthcare empowers people to proactively manage their health, creating enhanced quality of life for more people to enjoy.

A team obsessed with one thing

To disrupt the healthcare status quo so that no one is left behind.
