About

VenezVit was created with the purpose of making medicine available to the people who need them. We believe that reliable traceability and transparent auditing is needed to fight against corruption and misappropriation of humanitarian aid goods.
VenezVit is solving the lack of accountability in the workflow of major actors in humanitarian aid distribution, more specifically for vital and life-saving medications.
Our solution is to offer to humanitarian organizations digitalized tools, which give the user the ability to monitor goods during their journey, no matter where they are, while blockchain integration registers history of their actions on a ledger that can only be added to, never deleted making easy auditing and visualizing misappropriations (if it happen).
