The Republic of Ghana provides access to a universal health care system under the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS). In 2012, over 12 million Ghanaian nationals were covered by the NHIS, with urban centres containing most of the hospitals, clinics, and pharmacies in Ghana. There are over 200 hospitals in Ghana and in 2014 there was an estimation of 11 physicians and 104 nurses per 100,000 persons with 5.2% of Ghana’s GDP spent on healthcare (sources: NHIS Website, Ghana Ministry of Health).

“On behalf of the Chiefs, Elders, the youth, and the entire community, I wish to express my profound gratitude to UNIDOC Company Ltd and their alliance partners for this wholesome initiative. These facilities go a long way to curb the long queues at hospitals in order to see doctors for consultation. We look forward to more future collaborative efforts towards the development of our communities.” says the Queen Mother.

The “Virtual Care Solutions Model” is a proprietary customizable and comprehensive telehealth solution that integrates a range of physical products, web-based services, and analytical tools, along with access to the Company’s developing network of healthcare providers, pharmacies, and hospitals.

The MOU, which was entered into on March 16, 2022, provides for a subsequent binding agreement which will outline the commercial details, testing and implementation of the Virtual Care Solutions Model kiosks in independent locations and other locations throughout Ghana encompassing all kiosks assigned, associated, or affiliated with the Partner who shall have the rights to use of the Virtual Care Solutions Model in Ghana and elsewhere where both parties agree on the commercial terms. The Company proposes to offer leasing, subscription fee, and/or revenue sharing models to Partner and such definitive terms which the Parties agree to by using reasonable commercial efforts to negotiate in good faith prior to completion of the Transaction.

UniDoc CEO Antonio Baldassarre states, “The dialogue with our potential partners has been very positive to date. The healthcare environment in Ghana has long been somewhat focussed on their urban centres. We believe our telehealth solution can help by realigning resource priorities and holds the potential to spread primary diagnostic assessment more evenly across the nation. We are very excited by the opportunity to work with such a forward-looking team in providing innovative solutions to these sorts of issues. We aim to deliver an affordable commercial healthcare solution that could pave the way for future adoption beginning in West Africa and hopefully across the continent and beyond.”

On Behalf of the Board of Directors,

Sincerely,

~Antonio Baldassarre~
