Longlive was founded by CEO Hammad Ahmed, a business executive with more than 15 years of experience in technology and healthcare with the likes of Merck, Microsoft and Vodafone. Ahmed has successfully led the delivery of patient and health professionals’ support platforms.


Longlive’s mission is to make the latest technology available, free of charge, to all older adults – thus enabling system-wide improvements in the prevention, detection and management of chronic health conditions such as diabetes and hypertension (high blood pressure).


It combines sensors and credible medical and healthy lifestyle content to provide real-time advice to people with chronic disease, enabling them to live longer, happier lives.

Longlive also includes a wide range of specialist content on mental health, exercise and nutrition in the form of easy-to-follow articles, videos and podcasts.

Ahmed: “The launch of Longlive comes at a pivotal time.  With the health and social care sector under significant pressure and 1 in 3 adults worldwide living with multiple chronic conditions, there is a crucial need to tackle chronic disease in new and innovative ways.
