A new mobile service to help Kenyans access and purchase quality medicine online is set to be launched later this month.

MYDAWA is a technology based service that enables consumers to purchase authentic medicines, health and wellness products. It gives consumers the confidence of quality and value for their money.

MYDAWA features a unique track and trace mechanism that consumers can use to verify authenticity of products from source, while offering convenience and privacy to the consumer. It also offers value for money as it does not charge any service fees, transaction or delivery costs.

The service, a first of its kind globally, has been developed in Nairobi in collaboration with a diverse array of healthcare practitioners. MYDAWA aims to bridge the gaps between healthcare providers and patients thus improving quality and cost of care.

MYDAWA will officially be launched on Tuesday, March 28 th 2017 in Nairobi before it’s rolled out in other counties later this year.

“I believe in a world where digital technology is an enabler of a better life. Globally, Kenya is seen as a leader in innovation and we aim to harness it in delivering high quality healthcare products, safely, conveniently and affordably. We chose Kenya for this because the environment here is right. Kenyans are not afraid to tackle problems and adopt solutions that fit their needs. Look at the example of the MPesa, a world leading innovation with ever growing relevance 10years after inception,” Neil O’Leary Founder- MYDAWA.

As part of its pre-launch activities MYDAWA is engaged in a number of activities-to sensitize users and drive uptake. Notably the company is carrying out a series of educational workshops with healthcare professionals doctors, clinical officers, pharmacists, and pharmaceutical technologists.

Nairobian’s can now access and sign up for free on or download the MYDAWA app from the Google Play Store to start purchasing quality medicines and health products.
