Daktari aims to provide parents in Sub-Saharan Africa, trusted and timely medical advice from US trained and based Pediatricians.
We help solve the shortage of skilled health workforce in Africa, which means that a limited number of doctors and nurses have to attend to hundreds of patients daily. As a result, there is a lack of quality health care available for all classes of the population.
Over the past 3-5 years, people in Africa have started utilizing mobile phone applications to bring an improvement in their health indicators. Our product is a pediatric mobile consultation app designed to provide answers to parents seeking general advice and second opinion from professional Pediatricians regarding their child’s health and symptoms.
Our own market research and analysis shows that the market size for a mobile health app such as Daktari MD is estimated to grow from $5 million to $19 million over 5 years across a deployment in 4 target countries in West Africa.
