On-demand digital mental health platform, Nguvu Health, has entered a 2-year partnership deal with AXA Mansard to bolster its zeal to help Africans access affordable care in its focus sector.
Founded by Joshua Koya, Tolulope Ogunjuyigbe, and Juliet Odumosu, Nguvu Health was built by a group of licensed clinicians working to ensure the emotional and mental well-being of individuals, since 2020.
Through the partnership, Nguvu Health will have access to AXA Mansard’s customer base with thousands who seek proper efficient mental health attention.
Nguvu Health will also leverage its mental health audit that covers policy and procedures review, confidential staff interviews and surveys, and assessments of workplace communication, health, and safety to provide results for users that will be used in the development of a custom wellness action plan with timescales and quarterly wellness sessions – which will serve as ‘temperature checks’ – to assess progress and reinstate efficiency optimisation.
On the other hand, corporate clients and stakeholders of AXA Mansard will be granted quarterly discounted wellness sessions and a mental health audit. Users will also be given discounts for different therapy types, and 15% off couple and support group therapy.
In his comments on the partnership, Joshua Koya, CEO of Nguvu Health said: “According to a Deloitte global survey, 64% of employees are frustrated which leads to a decline in productivity. This survey result is a reflection of many workplaces globally, especially in Africa where the numbers are amplified due to the tough work environments. This partnership holds special promise for the corporate industry, and offers a particular benefit for the healthcare sector, particularly the mental health space by addressing difficulties and disorders created or exacerbated by work such as stress and burnout.”
