About Us

Shamseya is a problem solver to challenges facing healthcare.

In a country where up to 73% of total healthcare costs are paid for directly from people’s pockets; Shamseya recognizes that patients not only need to be supported with their recovery but also empowered to understand how to navigate and improve their healthcare system.

This is why we founded Shamseya back in 2012 – to find innovative healthcare solutions that put patients front and center.
