I’m excited to announce that we have officially launched our services in Bago!
Home to the opulent Kanbawzathadi Place, the majestic Shwemawdaw Pagoda, and the legendary King Bayinnaung, Bago is the hub of a region of nearly five million people. It’s also the site of Common Health’s first expansion beyond Yangon.
“We’re excited to serve families in Bago,” said Common Health chief executive Matthew Guilford. “Working in this important city is key to our mission of helping people with diabetes, hypertension, and chronic conditions save money and achieve better health.”
People in Bago are already benefiting from the company’s work. U Myint Ko Ko Oo, works as a hotel manager in Myothit township and is one of Common Health’s first customers in Bago. “I have bought my diabetes medicines from different places as I have had diabetes for more than 10 years. Common Health has the best prices when it comes to diabetes and heart medicines and I really like that they deliver it to my doorstep.”
Common Health’s model involves creating job opportunities for local community members, and empowering them to improve the health of their neighbors. For Kyaw Zaya, it’s also personal: his mother has hypertension. “I have watched my mother manage her hypertension for years,” he said. I’m excited that now I have an opportunity to help her, and to support her as she has supported me. And I’m proud to help other families in Bago with chronic diseases.”
The company’s pharmacy partner provides more than 300 medications focused on diabetes, hypertension, and heart disease. Customers can order medications by calling 0977 044 5000 and pressing “2” (7:00 AM - 10:00 PM, every day), messaging on Facebook or Viber, or through this website.
Orders are currently delivered in Bago three days each week: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Delivery to Bago is always free, and Common Health guarantees the quality of all medications and health products ordered via its platform.
