OUR VISION & MISSION
At BEMPU Health, our vision is for all children to have the chance to live full and healthy lives.
To achieve this, BEMPU Health offers innovative life-saving health products for children in low-resource areas.
Over 4% of the world’s children die before their 5th birthday, and many of those surviving experience long-term health injuries. The vast majority of these deaths and injuries occur in low-resource parts of the world and are preventable. We believe this is unjust, unacceptable and we have to do something about it.
BEMPU Health is a public health organization funded by the Gates Foundation, Grand Challenges Canada, USAID’s Saving Lives at Birth, and others. We received our first grant from the Gates Foundation in 2014 after spending a year in the field meeting with more than 100 pediatricians and neonatologists across India to learn more about the most severe problems in newborn health care. We worked doctors to brainstorm solution, build and test prototypes, and now we are distributing our health tech innovations.
We are a team of passionate and skilled health advocates working together to build technologies that will drastically improve global health. Our expertise ranges from biomedical and mechanical engineering, product design, medical electronics engineering, marketing and operations management, and public health.
We can’t do this alone
We see our partners, whether global health organizations, hospitals, suppliers, distributors, grantors, investors or more as vital to our bold mission. We treat them with respect, fairness and honesty. We provide fair margins to hospitals, suppliers, and distributors.
We are the Change
We are rebellious innovators, and we have to be. We operate in difficult terrain where the status quo is unacceptable. We embrace risk-taking, mistakes and failure as long as it comes with learning and resilience.
We deliver Sustainable Impact
Our interventions need to be scalable to help the most number of children around the world. We believe financial sustainability is vital to long-term reliable impact and we aim to generate profit which we then reinvest towards our social mission.
We do this for the Children
Our top priority lies with the children and their parents. We believe in co-creation of solutions with patients, medical professionals, governments and partners who are critical to the well-being of the children we serve. We commit to delivering consistently high impact products at reasonable prices.
We are Our Team
We treat our employees with respect, dignity and transparency. We provide safe and clean working environments. We provide fair compensation. Our growth and development relies on our employees’ growth and development. We strive to empower our employees to live happy and healthy lives at work and at home.
