We are impact partners

Harnessing technology to improve the lives of the world’s poorest

How we work

Our approach

How and why we do we what we do. These principles are built into the architecture of every project, partnership, and product we deploy.

People and privacy first

We put our beneficiaries first. Privacy, transparency, and human-centred design are the foundation of our approach.

Impact calls for collaboration

We are collaborators and co-creators. We are with you every step of the way to ensure a successful project.

Technology for challenging contexts

Technology doesn’t exist in a vacuum. Our biometric solution is optimised for the challenges of low-resource settings.

Simprints In the field

Sectors overview

Identification is a cross-cutting challenge. Our solution has been proven to work across multiple sectors.

Cash transfers

Financial access has penetrated nearly all corners of the developing world. However, preventing fraud in cash transfer programmes (CTPs) remains a key industry challenge. Ineligible recipients, ‘double dippers’, ‘ghosts’, and impersonators create CTP leakage, which results in intended beneficiaries not receiving their payment. Early impact results from one project show that the deployment of Simprints reduced potential fraud to <1%.

Immunisations

An overwhelming body of evidence shows that immunisations are one of the most successful and cost-effective health interventions ever known. Yet 1.5 million children die of vaccine preventable diseases every year, accounting for 17% of deaths in children under 5 years old. Simprints is partnering with Gavi to disrupt the inaccurate way we currently track and deliver vaccines, and instead build a world where every infant and child is reached in the fight against vaccine-preventable disease.

Maternal health

99% of maternal deaths occur in developing countries, the vast majority of which are preventable. The World Health Organisation recommends a minimum of eight check-ups before birth, however only 40% of all mothers are receiving these visits due to challenges in identification and accountability. Biometrics provide a powerful tool to identify patients, instantly finding the right record with the tap of a finger. Simprints is working with BRAC in the slums of Dhaka to ensure every mother and child has access to care.

Case Studies

Every use case is unique

We have partnered with nonprofits, NGOs, and government ministries to deliver services to thousands of the most vulnerable people around the world.

Scaling up to save lives at birth

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

Breaking transmission of neglected tropical diseases

The Children's Investment Fund Foundation aims to demonstrate a sustainable and scalable model for breaking transmission of parasitic worms in rural Ethiopia. In partnership with the Federal Ministry of Health, Ethiopian Public Health Institute, London Centre for Neglected Tropical Disease Research at Imperial College London, and World Vision Ethiopia, Simprints is helping to ensure high coverage of deworming treatment across 5 districts in Wolayita.

Tackling neglected diseases

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

Increasing student retention

Simprints helps Impact Network digitally track the attendance of their students, recognising lapses in each student’s attendance faster than paper-based attendance tracking. Together, we ensure every child continues learning.

Eliminating tuberculosis at the last mile

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