INCREASING ACCESS TO HEALTH CARE IN COMMUNITIES.
WHAT IS AFYASEND?
AFYASEND is an online platform for direct payment of health care services that are purchased by a sponsor to benefit family, friends and others in need. It provides unique packages of health care services which are negotiated with doctors, hospitals and other service providers to be purchased online. AFYASEND particularly targets the Diaspora living outside their countries as well as the in-country Diaspora who live in towns away from their rural homes. The direct payment to providers through AFYASEND ensures that beneficiaries receive the care they need instead of using Diaspora funds for competing demands.
