By Ivan R. Mugisha

Rwanda’s Ministry of Health is in a race against time to safeguard digitised healthcare access due to financial woes faced by Babylon, also known as Babyl, a healthcare enterprise offering telemedicine services across the country.

The UK-based company has been struggling for months to secure financing for its business and has filed for bankruptcy for two of its subsidiaries in the US, according to Forbes.
