Application in BETA version
Help Yourself mobile app is a simple to use, visually appealing android application that provides actionable, educative and life-saving health information to users and helps them connect to a platter of healthcare services through the below mentioned app features:
• First Aid
• Natural Remedies
• Mom’s Guide
• Menstrual Period Tracker
• Live Chat with a Medical Doctor
• Hospital Finder
1. 140,000 people in a developed world like the UK, die each year in situations where first aid could have helped save their lives. What more of our gradually emerging nation Cameroon, with a mediocre health care system?
2. Natural medicines are helping more and more people that are suffering from illnesses that are totally preventable or costly to treat. Because of the high costs involved with manufacturing modern medicines, many people living in developing nations, Cameroon etc simply do not have the the financial resources to pay for them. Making available these information on how to use these natural solutions is the least we could do.
3. Poor access to information on prevention practices and healthy lifestyles for mothers thus contributing to the high infant mortality rates in Cameroon; 53.43 deaths per 1,000 live births in 2015.
4. Low doctor per patient ratios: 1:10,000 urban areas and 1:50,000 in rural areas
5. Period hits once a month; but the exact day they arrive, the severity of cramps, flow and mood swings aren't quite so reliable. It is no wonder, then, that our period tracker feature will be of absolute importance to young girls.
6. Easily search for nearby hospitals and their emergency telephone contact in case of emergencies
