Carepoint Secures $10 Million to Make Healthcare Accessible for Sub-Saharan Africans

By Stephen Oluwadara Sangolade

CarePoint, a pan-African healthcare startup, has raised a $10 million bridge round to advance its growth and make healthcare accessible and affordable to Africans.

Since COVID-19 hit the world in 2020, the global attitude towards the health sector has gotten better. Not only have more funds been channelled to the sector, but entrepreneurs are now turning to technology to bring healthcare services closer to the people.

Today, it’s not uncommon to see telemedicine, virtual care, drug delivery, outpatient care and many other services not obtainable (in Sub-saharan Africa). This is thanks to the investments trickling down to healthcare startups who are creating innovative solutions to make healthcare accessible more than ever.
