2022 Partnership Proposal or Exploration: HERA Inc. & [Partner] | Download PDF version

HERA’s mission is to connect forcibly displaced populations with available health services in their host countries. We do this by utilizing a technology they are already familiar with—their mobile phones. Our vision is for HERA to connect refugee and displaced populations with available healthcare services wherever they may go. As a digital platform, HERA can store medical records, provide appointment reminders, and expand to other interventions such as finding nearby health centers, calling emergency services, and learning about the latest health issues such as the pandemic. Until now, we reached 3000 refugees and facilitated thousands of vaccines delivered and pregnancy care appointments done.

HERA Digital Health Mobile Application

Bridging the gap between available health services and refugee mothers and children is HERA’s priority, and HERA knows that mobile people require mobile solutions. Incubated at the Harvard Innovation Labs, HERA has already demonstrated impact in pilots funded by Grand Challenges Canada, the European Investment Bank, and Google.

HERA is a modern, open-sourced, easy-to-use, and multilingual mobile phone application that refugees can use to store their medical records and locate nearby medical clinics or emergency services. HERA also assists users in attending medical appointments such as prenatal care and routine childhood vaccinations by sending push notifications. Previous studies from other contexts show similar interventions can increase uptake of vaccines by 30% and prenatal care checkups by 40%. Multiple peer-reviewed papers have been published on HERA’s work.
