We believe every patient deserves access to timely advanced laboratory tests needed for their diagnosis and treatment. We are building a future where African patients have tech-powered access to the lab tests they need, when they need them, from wherever they live.
Working with a network of like-minded partners and leveraging innovative technologies, we are breaking the systemic barriers that have denied quality healthcare to many African peoples – one test at a time.
The Diagnostic Access Problem
Africa’s laboratory diagnostic access problem is complex and multifaceted, being simultaneously both silent and debilitating. Millions of African patients each year lack access to the advanced laboratory tests they need for diagnosis and treatment of diseases like cancer, extra-pulmonary tuberculosis or immune-mediated diseases. This often leads to delayed diagnosis, misdiagnoses or even no diagnosis at all.
TPN was built by pathologists to solve the challenges faced by surgical pathologists delivering diagnostic services to patients in low-resource settings. The original TPN software was launched in 2019 in Meru – a small town in rural Kenya. Its aim was to connect and support surgical pathologists running solo pathology practices across Kenya. It was designed to help pathologists work more efficiently and collaborate through a remote workflow powered by digital pathology. TPN has since evolved and matured into a service supporting other types of tests with a geographical reach extending across Kenya and beyond. TPN’s support for surgical pathology practice remains a strong part of TPN culture and is a testament to TPN’s roots in the surgical pathology lab.
