Africa’s healthcare sector is undergoing a revolution, thanks to the innovations of the 115 e-health startups currently active on the continent.
The High Tech Health: Exploring the E-health Startup Ecosystem Report 2017 examines data on e-health startups across 20 countries in Africa gathered by Disrupt Africa between January 2015 and September 2017.
Nigeria, South Africa and Kenya are early hotspots for e-health entrepreneurs, but the research shows an acceleration in startups launching continent-wide; with substantial communities of e-health innovators emerging in Uganda, Ghana, Egypt and Senegal.
