Altibbi to provide free telehealth consultations for the people of Lebanon

Altibbi, a healthtech platform in the Arab region that offers telemedicine consultation services, allowing patients to connect directly with doctors via audio calls and chats, announced providing free of charge telehealth consultations for the Lebanese people for a month.

In light of the recent tragedy that hit the heart of Beirut, Altibbi is hoping to support the overstretched health care system in Lebanon. Telehealth consultations will help link patients with doctors via audio calls and chats. The Altibbi team feels for their fellow Lebanese people and are humbled to participate in providing healthcare support to those affected by the disaster.

“Telehealth has proven vital impact with its ability to surpass physical boundaries to support the masses: from empowering governments with their fight against the spreading of COVID-19 to aiding a country in need of humanitarian healthcare aid. We hope that this initiative by Altibbi would help ease the burden on hospitals and healthcare centers by providing remote medical assistance. Cases that do not require immediate in-person attention or ones that need to follow up care will highly benefit from this, especially since the priority right now is for people still suffering from injuries and other urgent cases.” Jalil Allabadi CEO of Altibbi

Anyone in Lebanon can make use of this campaign by visiting the Altibbi website or downloading the app to be connected with a doctor within a minutes for free.
