Jama Abdi Farah is a 53-year-old male from Garowe, Puntland, Africa. A driver by profession, he has spent long hours driving a car for most of his adult life. While driving, he often experienced pain in his knees, back and wrists. Assuming it was part and parcel of his profession, he would take a short break, stretch and sip a tea and continue driving.

my-healthconnect, recently tied up with Arafat Hospital at Garowe (a new hospital opened in July 2018). We also flew in a Rheumatologist from India for a medical camp to diagnose and treat patients suffering from joint pains.
Jama Abdi Farah heard about the visit of the specialist through the local radio and immediately booked an appointment. Having endured joint pains for 18 years, he looked forward to his appointment with the specialist. The checkup and initial investigation confirmed that Mr.Farah had Rheumatoid Arthritis.

Rheumatoid Arthritis is an autoimmune disorder, which occurs when your immune system mistakenly attacks your own body’s tissues. Unlike the wear-and-tear damage of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis affects the lining of your joints. It also causes a painful swelling that can eventually result in bone erosion and joint deformity.

Mr.Farah is happy that he has found the right doctor to treat his symptoms, but Rheumatoid Arthritis is not a problem that can be solved in a single visit. He will need regular follow up (at least once in 2 months) and Mr.Farah is unsure on how to go about it as he can’t visit the doctor in India every 2 months, nor does Puntland have any Rheumatologist to do the follow up.
We at my-healthconnect, have started online medical consultation/follow up for such patients. Mr.Farah will be informed on his next follow-up date. He can now consult the specialist doctor from India via the my-healthconnect web platform.
