The babylon purpose

Watch the film to see our mission

“We will put an accessible and affordable health service in the hands of every person on earth.”

How? By combining the ever growing computing power of machines, with the best medical expertise of humans to create a comprehensive, immediate and personalised health service and making it universally available.

Our mission

Being ill is difficult enough, getting healthcare shouldn’t be. For many of us getting access to healthcare can be inconvenient or costly. But for some, the problem is more serious: almost 50% of the global population has little access to quality healthcare. 

Yet irrespective of where we live, most of us have a mobile phone in our pocket. Our mobiles are getting smarter every year: mobile phones today are a thousand times more capable than they were only 10 years ago and they will be at least a thousand times more powerful in the next ten years. Can you imagine the possibilities? 

babylon combines the latest technology with the knowledge and experience of the best doctors to make healthcare simpler, better, and more accessible and affordable for people everywhere.

Our goal is to help people around the globe live happier, healthier lives. We have started with United Kingdom, launched in Ireland, and we will soon start providing services to the whole population of an East African nation. Hopefully, that’s just the start.

“When we see how much can be done with existing technology, to improve access to healthcare for people everywhere, we ask ourselves two simple questions: if not us, then who? If not now, then when? There are no excuses for not trying…”

Dr. Ali Parsa, Founder and CEO of babylon
