About Rubi Health

Rubi Health is a novel, digital healthcare platform that connects mental health clinicians to mothers in real-time while leveraging online technology. Rubi Health also provides virtual staffing of psychiatrists & therapists into maternities & clinical settings experiencing shortages or seeking a more flexible approach to managing their behavioural health capacity using secured Rubi-connect video platform, which has been optimized for mental healthcare.

At Rubi Health, we believe 400 million mothers in Africa deserve access to an inclusive support system to help make informed decisions before, during pregnancy and parenthood. Worldwide about 10% of pregnant women & 13% of women who have just given birth experience a mental disorder, primarily depression. Its higher in Nigeria, i.e. 15.6% during pregnancy and 19.8% after childbirth. In some cases, mothers’ suffering might be so unwell that they may even commit suicide. Access to mental healthcare is a fundamental human right. Rubi Health understands that, which is why we’re committed to being the most trusted ally in every woman’s pursuit of health and well-being. This belief is what unifies all of us at Rubi Health. The lack of access to affordable mental healthcare and trusted support network for expecting moms and parents is a large and growing problem, making our mission that much more important. Our vision is to help empower 6 million parents to raise a healthy family by 2024 thereby reducing avoidable maternal and infant mortality by 45%.
