what about us ?

TrueSpec Africa is a healthtech company focused on bringing innovative solutions to complex problems affecting populations and industries worldwide. We developed a portable device that uses artificial intelligence to allow hospitals, pharmacies, pharmaceutical laboratories and quality control centers to determine whether or not a drug is genuine in less than 10 seconds anytime and anywhere in the world.

Why we do it

Around the world, millions people are exposed to high risk of illness or death from taking poor- quality medication used to prevent or treat most of tropical diseases. Existing drug’s testing devices are offered at a high price and not affordable in low and middle income countries.

Our Goal

Our goal is to protect people through improving the ability of national drug regulators to secure the drug supply chain. We do this by providing our platform as a service tool to drug regulators for their use in real time for drug quality checking, monitoring and reporting, all in the hope of reducing mortality due to fake drugs in Africa and in the world.
