The company was founded by Hamza Iqbal with the primary purpose of providing health care services in inaccessible areas of Pakistan at inexpensive pricing.
Without a doubt, this year marked a watershed moment for Pakistani companies, with total earnings exceeding $300 million, six times greater than funding in 2020.
Healthwire will use this funding to expand its services in Pakistan, making it one of the most popular apps in the country.
