Dubai, UAE; March 10, 2023: Abdul Latif Jameel Health, a healthcare enterprise dedicated to accelerating health inclusivity across the Global South, and ASP HEALTHCARE, a specialized medical equipment distributor in Morocco, have teamed up to bring Butterfly Network’s revolutionary Butterfly iQ+ TM ultrasound solution – as the first of many health tech innovations – to the Moroccan market.  This partnership leverages the strengths of both organizations to provide healthcare professionals in Morocco with a cutting-edge medical technology that delivers accurate and reliable results.  As a highly qualified and professional team, ASP HEALTHCARE is committed to meeting the market specific medical equipment needs with customized solutions that exceed expectations.

Morocco has made significant strides in recent years to improve its healthcare system, with a strong focus on providing access to high-quality medical care and treatment to all its citizens.  According to the World Health Organization, Morocco’s government spends approximately 5.2% of its GDP on healthcare, a figure that has been steadily increasing over the years.  The country has made significant investments in the construction of hospitals and healthcare facilities, with over 1,400 public and private hospitals and more than 2,000 primary healthcare centers spread across the country.  These facilities provide medical services to a population of approximately 37 million people.  Morocco has also implemented several initiatives to improve the quality of healthcare services, including the implementation of electronic health records and the introduction of telemedicine services.

The Butterfly iQ+TM represents a groundbreaking innovation in medical technology, enabling ultrasound assessment, diagnosis, and treatment procedures.  As the world’s first handheld ultrasound device with a single probe that covers the entire body, it has the potential to revolutionize healthcare by providing underserved communities with access to advanced medical imaging.  As part of the partnership agreement, ASP HEALTHCARE will commence commercial sales of the Butterfly iQ+ TM in mid-2023, making the technology available to medical doctors working in both public and private hospitals and facilities throughout the country.  This will greatly enhance the capabilities of healthcare practitioners, not only within primary care units but also beyond, expediting access to modern medical care for those who are most in need.

The innovative Butterfly iQ+TM is an all-in-one, portable ultrasound solution that leverages Ultrasound-on-ChipTM technology for a wide range of applications.  This device is designed to be used with iOS and Android smart devices, and comes with a battery pack, wireless charging, customizable app software, and AI-powered support. With more than 20 default presets, this cutting-edge technology delivers comprehensive imaging capabilities in a single, easy-to-use device.
