Equity Bank and Equity Afia – improving access to quality healthcare across East and Central Africa

Equity Afia is the flagship programme of the Equity Group Foundation’s (EGF) health sector engagement, with a mission to provide access to inclusive, standardized, quality healthcare and health financing to enable people to lead productive lives. This initiative was spurred by the recognition that there is a strong causative link between health and other key socioeconomic sectors that underpin broad-based economic development.

Equity Afia is an integrated model whose success is measured through the achievement of the following key objectives:

• To develop healthcare services of a standardised high quality, using a high-volume, low-margin (HV-LM) model and to an entrepreneurship model (franchising) to increase access to affordable and standardised high-quality outpatient care across the East & Central Africa region.
• To increase health literacy and health insurance among clients.
• To develop an affordable, comprehensive private health insurance product and to scale affordable comprehensive health insurance products using a HV-LM model.
