I am passionate about

I'm a Colombian entrepreneur interested in the intersection of healthcare and technology. As Cofounder of Dondoctor my objective is to digitize access to healthcare and empower people to live healthier lives. With the disruption of the internet, its expanded coverage worldwide, and increasing penetration of mobile devices even in the lowest income regions, the opportunities to innovate and impact millions of people for a fraction of the cost is a plausible reality. The circumstances are given to start a revolution in healthcare focused in prevention, early diagnosis, adherence to medical treatments, and game changing ways to access healthcare like telemedicine and online reliable information. We, young leaders, have a once-in-a-century opportunity to improve the health condition of millions of people and I foresee technology playing a central role in this challenge.

Actions

Committed to digitize access to healthcare to healthcare in Latin America one of Dondoctor’s initiatives is “Sexperto.co” a Webpage that provides Sexual Information and Education to Colombia’s youth. In partnership with a leading Hospital in Colombia and paid by the City of Bogota we’ve received over 800 thousand inquires, and thanks to its success, even the Major of Bogota recognized Sexperto as one of the most influential tools that helped Bogota reduce teenagers unwanted parenthood rates in 12.9%. Sexperto has impacted over 250 thousand persons and now we are enabling people to book appointments directly from Sexperto with Hospitals of the public network of Bogota. Currently we are working on scaling this model throughout Colombia and other Countries and building the same concept for Mental Health and Information about Drugs.
