Mazboot is an in-app coach for people living with diabetes for helping them self-manage their condition and get a consultation from doctors. It provides people with diabetes a personal assistant (conversational agent) that empowers them within their daily life to take care of their glucose measurements, diet, medications, physical fitness, and required checkups. Mazboot helps patients face the financial burden of diabetes management by using a mobile wallet that offers patients discounts on all diabetes management products like glucometer strips, medications, and even healthy meals. Diabetes is a chronic health condition that requires patients to be educated, empowered and motivated to self-manage their disease in order not to get severe health complications. The market gap is that current healthcare systems in Egypt and Arab countries don't provide proper services for diabetic patients in terms of patient education services, specialized insurance models, nor smart interactions with healthcare providers.

Tareq Mandour was selected one of the 22 finalists of the MENA Innovation Challenge in 2020 for his start up “Mazboot”.
