MyHealth Africa, a Kenya-based healthcare platform that connects patients with local and international medical specialists and hospitals, has announced plans to expand its reach in Africa and move into the Middle East and South Asia next year.
MyHealth Africa, founded by Ryan Marincowitz in 2017, is a healthcare platform connecting patients with local and international medical specialists and hospitals, aiming to make healthcare more accessible across Africa.
The start-up is working to solve inefficiencies in the African health sector, where medical tourism is common and the patient-to-doctor ratio is among the lowest in the world. MyHealth Africa allows patients to access healthcare services virtually or in-person from doctors and providers around the globe.
The company assists over 1,200 patients monthly and has grown month-on-month patient visits by an average of 11% in 2022, having assisted over 27,000 patients in accessing specialized healthcare services from over 1,500 medical professionals and health facilities.
This latest funding follows a $1 million seed funding round led by GIIG Africa Fund and featuring participation from Samurai VC and existing investors, bringing the total amount raised by the start-up to $1.3 million.
