In Africa, AXA has invested an undisclosed sum in a Morrocan healthtech platform called Dabadoc. The investment will help Dabadoc to enhance its footprint in its existing geographies and further develop its healthcare offerings.
The platform is available in Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Nigeria and South Africa and has seen over two million appointments since its launch. It offers a platform to find and book doctor appointments online, along with telehealth services. The platform also has a telemedicine product – a dedicated mobile app called DabaDoc Live that enables users to consult doctors from wherever they are for a fixed fee of 200 Moroccan Dihram (a little more than $20).
Dabadoc targets to democratise access to healthcare with its practice management solution and disruptive online booking technology.
