Funds to expand Africa’s online doctor service

 

DabaDoc, the Morocco-based healthtech disrupter, has raised an undisclosed amount from AXA Insurance Morocco to improve the service and move into new countries. The service is currently available in Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Nigeria and South Africa.

DabaDoc offers a platform to find and book doctor appointments online,  and ask health questions using video conferencing with doctors.

Launched in 2014, DabaDoc helps thousands of patients to connect with doctors through its platform each month.

The investment means AXA becomes the first institutional investor in DabaDoc, which sets out to democratise access to healthcare with its practice management solution and disruptive online booking technology. It has seen over two million appointments booked through its platform since its launch.

Says founder, Zineb Drissi-Kaitouni: "We are at the inception of a disruption in the way healthcare is delivered. Having AXA as a shareholder adds an important dimension to our mission of democratising access to healthcare. We are excited about further growth prospects with this partnership and the expertise provided by AXA in our existing and future markets."
