INSURANCE COMPANIES

By lowering health illiteracy among its clients and investing in preventive healthcare through Mobile Afya, insurance companies reduces the number of preventable diseases and health conditions that will need hospitalization or curative care. It also  increases the likelihood of detecting individuals at risk and begin treatment early.
