About Us

Formed in South Africa in 2014, Aviro is a design-focused health company looking to improve the experience of healthcare. What we do is based in science and elevated with creativity. Our work complements empirical observation with empathy, narrative and meaning. We believe this is the best way to create significance and change in the world of healthcare.


We operate at the interface between patients and health workers, and our role is to address the challenges facing both so that the improved experience of healthcare delivery can, ultimately, create healthier people.

We are committed to long-term positive outcomes, so our work always includes sustainability and impact analysis components.

We believe that only a strong, confident team can create positive change, so we strive towards having a diverse and inclusive team that is committed to supporting each other and being transparent with all stakeholders.  

We work with people from varied backgrounds (from artists to data scientists to doctors) who seek insights and inspiration from the interactions between people and domains of knowledge, and who appreciate how elegant combinations of these can create meaning and change.

Good design is a renaissance attitude that combines technology, cognitive science, human need, and beauty to produce something that the world didn’t know it was missing.
