About Cardo Health
Cardo Health is a digital health company with a mission to improve the health and wellbeing of millions of people in emerging markets. The company invests in and scale the best early stage digital health start-up in each of our markets. Bringing funding and a proven business concept, it leverages technology and extensive operational know-how to create local, leading digital health champions.
Cardo Health’s co-owned companies ViBe Saúde in Brazil and Kena Health in South Africa already provide high-quality, affordable care to one million registered users. Headquartered in Stockholm, Cardo Health is on an ambitious growth journey to become the leading digital health company in emerging markets.
The healthcare sector in emerging markets faces real challenges. With a high number of uninsured citizens and a dependency on public healthcare, there is an enormous, untapped potential to transform the health sector in these markets. It is characterized by limited accessibility, long waiting times and overall low quality. The digital health sector in emerging markets is growing twice as fast as the global market, and is expected to rise from 16 to 33 billion dollars by 2024. Meanwhile, the Covid-19 pandemic has accelerated regulatory approvals as well as the consumption of digital health services, growing the opportunity further.
With a high dependency on public healthcare and unaffordable private insurances, many citizens in emerging markets do not have access to proper medical care. Digital solutions can help improve access to affordable and high-quality care, resulting in better patient experiences and reduced societal costs.
The company’s goal is to continue to grow through its co-owned companies, offering high-quality, affordable care in an additional nine countries with a total population of one billion people by the end of 2023.
