THE FUTURE OF HEALTHCARE, IN AFRICA

OUR MISSION

  

Our mission is to use technology to connect patients with doctors.  By taking advantage of the growing use of smartphones and connectivity in Africa, we aim to facilitate access to quality healthcare for millions of people living in Cameroon, and ultimately Africa. Technology enables us to remove geographic barriers, eliminate time constrains and ultimately, reduce costs of consultations. 

WHAT WE DO

 

We are leveraging technology to provide accessible and affordable medical care to all Cameroonians, and eventually, all Africans.
