Kangpe Health: The Nigerian Tech Startup Bridging the Gap in Healthcare Access in Africa

Africa, a continent rich in diversity and potential, faces significant challenges in ensuring equitable access to quality healthcare for its growing population.

While there have been notable strides in recent years, vast disparities persist across the continent, leaving millions without access to essential medical services.

One of the primary obstacles to healthcare access in Africa is the underfunding of healthcare systems.

Mobile health solutions, telemedicine, and other digital tools are being explored to expand access to healthcare in remote areas.

Kangpe Health is one such startup using tech to bridge the gap in healthcare access in Africa.
