The Investment

Men have historically not engaged with their health in the way that they should, and the effects of this are staggering.

Driven by underlying social stigmas that have shaped the self-perception of men for generations, men have an innate fear of addressing health concerns due to the associated shame as well as a lack of convenience that often comes in doing this. As a result, men are reportedly far more likely to suffer from cancers, heart disease, obesity and poor mental health.

Sokratis founded Numan in 2018, a fully integrated healthcare platform, to provide a safe space for men to address their health concerns. Supported by a powerful e-health platform, Numan facilitates various links across these healthcare products and services to provide a holistic end-to-end experience to help close the health engagement gap for men.
