Healthcare at the click of a button

With patients in Africa having to wait in long queues, travel vast distances or wait weeks for a visit from a healthcare provider, e-health innovations have the potential to change the lives of millions of people on the continent.

However, it’s not simply a case of copying e-health providers in developed countries where this model has worked well.
