TMA is currently implementing SpeedyFinances Afya Yangu–(SF Afya Yangu) innovation to accelerate the achievement of Universal Health Coverage (UHC) as an effort to compliment Sustainable Development Goal Number 3 which is to ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all ages. The advantage of SF-Afya Yangu as compared to the traditional way of purchasing health insurance is that the system is linked to all individual expenditures and accumulates points as the individual purchases goods and services. At the end of the year, the bonus accumulated is converted to purchase health insurance bundles for the individual, spouse, and dependents.

This innovation will motivate people to use SF-Afya Yangu as a payment gateway to all their expenditures because they will as a result benefit from the health insurance bundle. Another advantage of using SF-Afya Yangu is that people who are employed and covered with health insurance can buy insurance coverage for their friends and hence accelerate the achievement of UHC. This innovation will accelerate UHC for less than 10 years as compared to the traditional way which will take centuries to achieve UHC.
