Zoie Health was created by women, for women. Co-Founder Thato Schermer was shocked at how expensive it was to go to the gynaecologist, get a contraception prescription, and fill it at a pharmacy. It’s this lack of access that motivated her to create a hub that delivers much-needed services.
For Co-Founder Dr Nonie Sitole, it was motherhood that motivated her. After the birth of her second child, she experienced postpartum depression, and realised how lonely it can be without proper support. What she really wanted was a sense of community to share her experiences with, and a real professional to point her in the right direction. Together, they created Zoie to give women access from wherever they’re located.
They believe women deserve access to affordable, definitive and helpful healthcare at every phase of their lives. Together they are building Africa’s first digital women’s health clinic for 500 million women, offering a holistic portal that includes much needed support for family planning, fertility, maternity and beyond.
