Why 'Apnee Sehat'
Apnee Sehat means "Our Health" in many south asian languages.
Apnee Sehat aims to redesign patient care pathway through innovative techniques. We believe in developing an integrated healthcare model to overcome the traditional and cultural barriers. This would involve all the stakeholders - pharmacists, GPs and consultants making it a one-stop solution for communities.
