Sehat Kahani, a Karachi-Based Startup Raises $1 Million Pre-Series A Round for Their Telemedicine Network

Sehat Kahani, a telemedicine startup based in Karachi, announced today that it has raised $1 million in a Pre-Series A round. Islamic Development Bank, 10Pearls Ventures, Mentors Fund, Singapore-based Korean Impact Fund, and Impact Investment Exchange all contributed to the funding. The round was also joined by KASB Securities, Din Group, and a few angel investors.

Sehat Kahani began as a network to link home-based female doctors with patients through telemedicine-enabled brick and mortar health clinics. It was established in 2017 by two female doctors, Sara Saeed Khurram and Iffat Zafar Aga. The aim was to use a network of nurse-assisted health clinics to link a large number of female doctors who are unable to practice medicine at a hospital or clinic because of family commitments with patients in underserved communities.

Since then, the startup has grown into a telemedicine platform that provides on-demand health services to patients across the country (and beyond) through web and mobile apps, as well as through its network of offline clinics staffed by 5,000 female doctors. Since its launch, it claims to have given more than 350,000 consultations.
