Purchasing medecine represent the major part of health dispenses in Senegalese households. The high cost of medecine is an obstacle for poor populations who can choose to opt for resellers of counterfeit medecine whereas proper unused medecine is being stocked in advantaged households and forgotten until they rot. Jokkosanté connects people with a surplus of medecine and people looking for these medecine. Through a points system, patients can exchange their medecine on the mobile application and retrieve others when their prescription is renewed. Companies can fund medecine and the recipients then receive information on the said company: Jokkosanté wants to guarantee the traceability of donations and the visibility of the efforts put by the companies to increase their social impact. Circular economy and funding logics coupled with that of Jokkosanté contributed to the e-health obersvatory prize this initiative received.
