Simprints at a glance

Technology built for impact

Our partners tackle some of the world’s toughest challenges. Our solution is built to amplify impact at the last mile.

Scaling up to save lives at birth

Using the Simprints biometric system, Shasthya Kormis tracks the number of antenatal and postnatal care visits a mother receives with unprecedented accuracy and efficiency to help decrease infant and maternal mortality.

Improving HIV outcomes in youth

Research assistants at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine are using Simprints to protect the privacy of 30,000 study participants seeking HIV/AIDS support services. Biometrics enables the intervention to be ‘youth-friendly’ and limits the amount of identifying information that needs to be collected from these vulnerable individuals.

Eliminating tuberculosis at the last mile

Using Simprints to enrol and identify participants in Blantyre, Malawi, research assistants from the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine tested a new regimen to diagnose and treat tuberculosis (TB) in patients attending a local clinic.

Digitally-enabling a primary health system to save lives

Leveraging Simprints biometrics, AI-powered diagnosis and decision-support, and more, Apotheker and D-Tree have created an integrated digital health system. CHWs, health facility staff, and private drug shop dispensers will utilise the system to manage patient care, including confirming referral linkages and communication throughout the primary health system.

Interrupting transmission of neglected tropical diseases

The Ethiopia Federal Ministry of Health aims to demonstrate a sustainable model for breaking transmission of parasitic worms. In partnership with the Ethiopian Public Health Institute, London Centre for Neglected Tropical Disease Research, World Vision Ethiopia, and the Children's Investment Fund Foundation, Simprints is helping to ensure high coverage of deworming treatment across five districts in Wolayita.

Tackling neglected diseases

Simprints helps Cohesu, a grassroots NGO in Kenya, track and treat neglected diseases such as tunga (infection caused by sandfleas), malaria, and diarrhea in school children and their families. Through accurate identification, Cohesu is able to follow up with each patient to ensure complete eradication of the diseases.

sectors overview

Working across multiple sectors

The identification challenge spans multiple sectors in international development. From aid distribution to education, Simprints helps you reach every last person.

Maternal health

99% of maternal deaths occur in developing countries, the vast majority of which are preventable. 


1.5 million children under 5 lose their lives to vaccine-preventable diseases every year, with an additional 19.9 million infants remaining underimmunised.

Neglected Tropical Diseases

According to the World Health Organisation, NTDs affect over 1 billion people, primarily rural populations living in low-income countries.

Cash and Aid Distribution

Ensuring coverage in cash transfer programmes and aid distribution remains a key challenge: ineligible recipients and ‘ghosts’ can prevent intended beneficiaries from receiving their disbursement.

Infectious Diseases

Infectious diseases are among the top 10 global health threats. Treatments are becoming increasingly available, but challenges in reaching patients remain.
