    Telenor’s home country is among the world’s healthiest; now the company is helping to improve health in Bangladesh, where getting access to health care is difficult. Through Tonic, an app-based program aimed at subscribers of Telenor’s Grameenphone service, some 5 million customers have signed up for benefits like the Jibon (“Life”) app, which provides free information about maintaining a healthy, sanitary routine. Tonic Daktar (“Doctor”) provides access to immediate medical advice by phone for a fee of about 6¢ per minute. Tonic also offers discounts on medical services and financial aid for hospitalizations.
