doctHERs reintegrates women healthcare providers (HCPs) who have been excluded from the workforce by using a digital health platform that matches the under-used capacity of remotely located women doctors (who work from home) to the unmet needs of health seekers. doctHERs trains and equips 4G-wifi tablet-enabled frontline health workers who are women and deploys them in factories and underserved communities where they serve as trusted intermediaries, connecting beneficiaries to a global network of licensed healthcare providers who are women (doctors, pharmacists, therapists and nutritionists).
