Dawaa Dost solves four major problems in the medicine part of healthcare

1. Firstly, it solves the problem of affordability. In spite of India being the largest supplier of medicine globally, 68% of Indians can’t afford or don’t have access to medicines.

Amit says, “It’s our promise to customers that they save 50-80% on their entire prescription for their whole life.”

2. “Dawaa Dost solves the problem of availability. In India, the entire availability is inversely pyramid. Availability of medicines is not a problem in metros but it’s a huge problem in real Bharat. We are very much focused on providing this service to the interiors and hinterland of the country.”

3. Dawaa Dost provides awareness about medicines to its consumers. Dawaa Dost is the largest content owner of medicine globally through the platform Medwiki. Medwiki is the largest video library on medicine having 7.50,000 videos in six different Indian languages. 

Amit adds, “We are trying to solve all the questions and queries related to medicine. By 2025, we will have more than 1 billion questions being answered.”

4. Lastly, Dawaa Dost is solving the problem of non-adherence to medicine. In India, only 6-7% of patients take medicine on time. Customers get a call reminding them to take their medicine. Taking medicines on time and avoiding skipping medicines are very important.

Learnings for the budding entrepreneur

Amit concludes, “You must know how to ride a Ferrari as well as a bicycle. Always find a good co-founder, don’t try to do everything on your own. It helps you pick up the pace. It’s like 1+1=11. Growth comes with chaos. Embrace and encourage chaos.”
