About Eden Care Medical:
15M Africans slip into poverty every year due to a large medical bill, yet health insurance penetration (the best solution to this problem) sits at 0.2% — 10x lower than other emerging markets — partly due to the lack of modernization in the industry. Eden Care Medical (YC S23) is building delightful digital health insurance for employers in Africa, starting in Rwanda.
Founded by Moses Mukundi, Eden Care is on a mission to provide access to affordable quality healthcare to 100 million people in Africa and other emerging markets.

And its focus on proactive engagement with its members on wellness and prevention differentiates it in the market.
