DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES--(Marketwired - Mar 12, 2014) - Global Equity International, Inc. (OTCQB: GEQU) and its fully owned subsidiary Global Equity Partners Plc., a specialist consultancy firm with offices located in Dubai and London is pleased to announce that today the Company has signed a contract and agreed on a strategy with (Your Mobile Doctor) Your.MD AS, to assist with taking the Company to the public markets of Dubai (NASDAQ Dubai).
Your.MD AS is currently financed by ultra-high net worth individuals and managed by an experienced executive team, with the simple aim of putting 'a doctor in every pocket'. Not one human being excluded.
Your.MD AS is a British and Norwegian company with offices in London, Oslo, Shanghai and Dubai and in Q2 2014, will launch a series of mobile applications in the Middle East, that are set to revolutionise "mHealth" by delivering personalized healthcare advice to millions via mobile and tablet devices.
This service brings healthcare advice to those in areas where primary healthcare is needed most; whether that's due to large expense, poor access, and poor quality primary health or for those who are unable to travel. Current industry figures show that good quality mHealth services can reduce the strain on healthcare systems across the world by up to 90% -- especially in geographies that have better access to mobile networks than to basic sanitation. Your.MD is primarily focused on emerging markets.
Your.MD AS has agreed to move forward with GE Partners Plc. in their focus to launch onto the NASDAQ Dubai and grow globally as they are basing their MENA and Indian Subcontinent operations out of a strong local base in the UAE.
Your.MD AS is a very exciting contract for GE Partners Plc. in their first move into mobile application technology companies. GE Partners Plc. is acutely aware of both the wisdom in this particular service offering, but also how fast the mobile application market is growing.
Your.MD's application provides deep knowledge of 2,200 conditions and tests show a relevant result to an individual's symptoms 95% of the time, thanks in part to their content partnership with the UK's NHS. The ability to reduce wait-times is also significant. Thanks to big data technologies, Your.MD provides the users with information on how to identify, treat, self-diagnose, and live with conditions within 0.25 seconds, compared to an average wait time to see a doctor of several days.
To ensure that Your.MD AS reach their goal of positively affecting 1 billion individuals in the next 5 years, they distribute their product in association with Health Insurers, Mobile Handset Manufacturers, and Mobile Network Operators, in each region where they are present.
Gregory Kris, CEO Your.MD AS, commented, "We're delighted to be working with Global Equity International Inc and its subsidiary GE Partners PLC. Their expertise, drive and sector experience played a significant part in us selecting them as partners for our listing on the public markets. Importantly, they share our vision of improving the lives of millions of people through mobile technologies, and play an important part in helping us achieve our objectives."
Peter Smith, CEO of Global Equity International Inc., commented, "Your.MD AS could change the way we all care for ourselves and others. We are all yet to find out the true global effect that this technological service has to offer and we are incredibly excited to be part of it."
