Stre@mline chosen for AUDA-NEPAD Home Grown Solutions Accelerator for Pandemic Resilience
Stre@mline is among the 14 companies that have been chosen for the 2nd cohort of the AUDA-NEPAD Home Grown Solutions Accelerator for Pandemic Resilience.  There was a pool of 160 applicants from over 25 countries. The accelerator will run for 6 months from May to November, 2022. Speaking on behalf of the steering committee, Dr. Ibrahim Assane Mayaki said, “We went through a first pilot phase, which has allowed us to see clearly the impact that this idea of supporting Home Grown Solutions can have success. I believe that in this second phase and as we expand the initiative, we will be able to show even more impact on health systems, this time across the continent”, expressing his satisfaction not just with the Accelerator, but even more so with the innovative and impactful work undertaken by the selected and other African ‘Home Grown Solutions’ healthcare ventures.

The HGS accelerator is an Acceleration programme for growth and mature stage African healthcare companies, conceptualized in response to the COVID-19 pandemic in a realization of both the potential of local private sector solutions to strengthen the continent's pandemic resilience as well as the lack of more mature stage and healthcare specific support mechanisms for those players

The accelerator is co-founded by the African Union Development Agency (AUDA-NEPAD), financially supported by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and are operated by the same with support from Boston Consulting Group (BCG), a premier global management consulting firm, and VillgroAfrica, an experienced Pan-African Accelerator

The accelerator is expanding beyond the initial 2021 Pilot in East Africa where it supported Access Afya, Africa Healthcare Network, DamuSasa, MSCAN and RevitalHealthcare and built a supporting network that includes the likes of World Food Programme, Africa CDC, GIZ, Rwandan Development Board, CSIR, AAIC, Ecobank Foundation, Aga Khan Foundation, World Health Organization, UNIDO, Afreximbank and others.

Stre@mline is looking forward to gaining a lot of support especially to grow the Stre@mline Ubuntu Community Health insurance product and to scale and impact more people.
