WELCOME TO 4HEALTH

4Health Limited is a Papua New Guinean startup established to address the high maternal (mother) and neonatal (newborn) mortality rates in PNG through its new product called the ”Karim kit”

This startup was founded by two medical practitioners (a medical doctor and a nurse with more than 20 years combined experiences) after meeting at Kumul GameChangers Entrepreneurship Program in 2017, Based on their professional experiences, the Karim Kit was developed to prevent post-delivery bleeding for pregnant mothers Puerperal Sepsis and Neonatal Sepsis in the rural areas and also in the urban disadvantaged areas. 

The Karim Kit was trialed at various church run rural aid posts and clinics in the West New Britain Province for the last 12 months and thus proven to be very successful.

4Health Limited aims to supply the Karim Kit to other parts of the country  through partnership with the National Department of Health and other donor agencies.

TESTIMONIAL

Goodnigh Doctor, I want to share a personal experience with Karim Kit yesterday. On my way to the day clinic, a labouring mother was walking infront of me heading for delivery at Lalopo. Unfortunately she couldn’t manage… She went into labour just on the road…. I ran to the clinic, got two gloves and knowing that she had a karim kit. I returned and deliver her baby using the karim kit items. Really appreciated it. Thankyou doctor Ketalu for making it possible for me!     .
