Hera Digital Health

Preventive Healthcare made easy for refugee mums and children

During pregnancy, refugee women receive an average of one pregnancy checkup. The World Health Organization recommends at least eight. What’s more, only 10% of refugee children are fully vaccinated. HERA is changing this.

Our proven, simple mobile app makes preventive healthcare easy and accessible - even to the most low-tech users.

Our vision and mission

HERA’s mission is to provide a mobile health platform that connects refugee populations with existing healthcare worldwide. 

As the first step to achieving our mission, HERA aims to increase the rate of prenatal care and childhood vaccinations among Syrian refugees in Turkey under temporary protection. 

HERA plans to expand its coverage during the subsequent stages to provide services to refugees worldwide. 

Our Pilot Study

Our proven, well-tested digital healthcare app reduces preventable deaths by removing the demand-side barriers that stop refugees from accessing childhood vaccinations and prenatal care.

How the App Works ?


HERA (which stands for Health Records App) is an open-sourced mobile health (mhealth) platform that aims at increasing the uptake of preventive health services for pregnant women, and immunization for children under two years of age. Through a mobile app, the platform enables users to receive healthcare appointment reminders, receive health information, store centralized medical records, contact emergency services, and navigate the healthcare system of the host country in multiple languages. The app is currently available in Arabic, Turkish, English, and Dari.
