  • The platform that enables customers to buy quality medicines and health products affordably and conveniently from their mobile phones now has 10,000 customers in Nairobi.
  • MYDAWA embarked on an aggressive awareness and recruitment drive to bolster subscriptions
  • The App projects grow its customer base in Nairobi to 30,000 in the coming three months before rolling out to other parts of the country.

Mydawa.com was launched in Kenya in March this year to revolutionize the pharmaceutical sector, and has since then hit 10,000 subscribers in Nairobi.

Commenting in a press statement on this achievement MY DAWA managing director Tony Wood was grateful to all users for believing in the firm’s commitment to providing them with quality and affordable medicines and health products that give them peace of mind.

The announcement comes barely two weeks after the Kenya Association of Pharmaceutical Industry (KAPI) released a report of a survey noting the incidence of unregulated medicines in the Kenyan market.

Tony Wood further said :“MYDAWA customers can be sure of genuine quality products and further, we provide them a secure mechanism that allows them to verify authenticity. We are standing on our promise of delivering quality, affordable medicine, conveniently.”

The number of products available on mydawa.com has also increased and there are now over 1000 products that consumers can buy ranging from prescription and over the counter drugs to wellness products including multivitamins, supplements, personal care, cosmetics and hygiene products. Each product is secured with a unique tamper-evident seal that allows customers to verify authenticity of the products.

MYDAWA is expected to unveil other connected partnerships in the coming weeks in a bid to drive further value for users.

You can buy medicine and health products affordably from the convenience of your phone on www.mydawa.com or via the MYDAWA app, where you can access prescription drugs by uploading a photo of your prescription onto the platform. Payments are made via Mpesa, and the products are delivered free of charge to a collection point of your convenience.
