    About Ilara Health

  • Ilara Health was founded to make common diagnostics affordable and accessible to the 500m people in Africa who today struggle to access even simple diagnostic tests such as blood tests and ultrasound screening.

Doctors can now offer tests directly in their clinic, improving care and growing their revenue.
