About Zava:

Since our inception in 2011, we’ve been on a mission to provide our patients with healthcare that is dependable, affordable, and a fraction of today’s cost. To date, we’ve provided over 5 million consultations across the UK, Germany, France, and Ireland. 

We began our mission with an asynchronous approach to healthcare. Patients fill out a short medical questionnaire for review by our in-house doctors and once approved the appropriate medication is sent directly to their door. Our approach has been successful in removing the time and effort needed to visit a GP in person and in treating a high volume of patients within a relatively short space of time.

Our pharmacy is busier than ever but since our $32m investment in 2019, we have been adding to our offering to become a more holistic healthcare provider. Now, we offer live one-to-one video consultations in Germany through our iOS and Android apps, have white-label partnerships in the UK, and are constantly looking at ways to do more for our patients. 

We have ambitious growth plans at ZAVA, after a second successful round of investment and following the completion of two exciting acquisitions in Germany, and we are now in the early phases of developing partnerships with statutory healthcare providers, as well as health insurers so that we can offer our services with reduced costs to our patients. 

We aim to be Europe’s biggest digital healthcare provider by 2025.
