Boutros Bear is a digital health venture on a mission to help individuals and organisations better manage chronic illness, starting first in cancer.
Our platform currently consists of our flagship Cancer Rehabilitation programme that has been designed with a team of scientific and clinical experts and patient advocates. Using behavioural science insights, our 12-week programme helps individuals recover faster and adopt long-lasting healthy habits after cancer treatment.
Our digital behaviour change programme consists of personal one-to-one coaching, group-based interventions, and evidence-based curriculums to support and empower participants with chronic conditions. Boutros Bear also provides e-training services for employers to better support individuals in their return to work after chronic illness. Our mission is to be the market leader in chronic illness management and to help individuals improve their quality-of-life with and beyond chronic illness.
