Healthcare Startup Africa Health Holdings Lands $18 Million Series a Funding, to Roll-out Tech-enabled Services
By Annie Njanja
Africa Health Holdings, a healthcare startup running several hospitals, has secured $18 million in a Series A round, funds that will go towards building its “tech-forward healthcare system” across Ghana, Kenya and Nigeria.
The funding round, led by Asia Pacific Land/Natural World Limited, saw the participation of a number of investors including TRB Advisors, Breyer Capital, M3, Inc., Valiant Capital, Kepple Ventures and SUNU Capital.
Africa Health Holdings, based in West Africa, will use the new capital to expand its telemedicine service beyond Ghana, to countries like Nigeria and Kenya. This is in line with its plan to grow its portfolio beyond in-person visits and to allow electronic follow-ups through its mobile app, as more people across the continent get connected.
