Introducing Spirit Health Foundation

We are an independent non-profit organisation set up to help make health easy and accessible in underserved communities across the world.

September 21, 2023

Despite the brilliant efforts of numerous healthcare organisations and professionals, billions of people still struggle to access the healthcare they desperately need, resulting in countless lives and livelihoods lost.

Traditional healthcare systems and a lack of resources are significant roadblocks in delivering good health and wellbeing for all. One pressing concern is the projected shortage of 10 million healthcare workers by 2030, primarily in low- and lower-middle-income countries. In response to this global challenge, the Spirit Health Foundation has risen to the occasion.

Amplifying impact, not duplicating efforts

We aim to leverage Spirit Health’s innovative health technology platforms, clinical services, expertise, and dedicated personnel to confront this challenge head-on. Rather than duplicating existing efforts, our focus lies in amplifying impact.

We plan to work with communities, non-profit organisations, governments, and global healthcare partners to create simpler, scalable healthcare systems that are accessible to all.

The role of Clinitouch

At the heart of our approach stands Spirit Health’s award-winning Clinitouch platform. Clinitouch allows people to be screened and have their medical conditions monitored from virtually anywhere. This will help build ensure that  comprehensive primary healthcare systems are built within communities instead of isolated healthcare initiatives.

Chris Barker, CEO of Spirit Health Group, states:

“Spirit Health’s mission has always been to make health easy and all – and ‘all’ means reaching everyone with our healthcare platforms and services. We’re passionate about supporting The Spirit Health Foundation in making this a reality in communities currently lacking access to the affordable health services they need”.

Rich Bryson, CEO and Co-Founder of the Spirit Health Foundation, adds:

“Despite progress, there’s a lot to do to deliver health for all. Far too many lives are still lost and limited simply because people can’t get the healthcare they need. Global health can be complex, but our approach is straightforward. We’ll bring Spirit Health’s platforms, services and people to address the issues of traditional health services and build simpler, scalable healthcare systems with communities and partners on the ground”.
