MYDAWA, a Kenyan e-health startup with an all-in-one health platform for consumers has secured $20 million to fund its expansion in Africa
MYDAWA, a leading Kenyan e-health startup, has raised $20 million to fund its mission of becoming an all-in-one health platform for consumers.
The investment was made by Alta Semper Capital LLP, a dedicated frontier-markets private equity firm investing in flexible and strategic capital in healthcare and consumer opportunities. MyDawa aims to provide convenient access to quality healthcare products and services through its innovative online platform.
The company has gained prominence by offering customers a seamless experience of ordering prescription medication, over-the-counter drugs, health supplements, and personal care products, which are then delivered directly to their doorstep. The startup’s innovative approach has played a pivotal role in addressing the challenges faced by traditional brick-and-mortar pharmacies, such as long wait times, limited inventory, and counterfeit medications.
The e-health industry has witnessed substantial growth in Kenya and across Africa, driven by increasing internet penetration, the rise of mobile technology, and the growing demand for accessible healthcare services. MyDawa’s success story highlights the potential of digital health platforms to transform the healthcare landscape, ensuring that individuals can easily access essential medications and healthcare products.
With the new funding, MyDawa aims to expand its network of partner pharmacies, strengthen its supply chain capabilities, and further invest in customer support and user experience. The company also plans to explore strategic collaborations with healthcare institutions and insurers to create a comprehensive ecosystem that caters to the holistic needs of patients.
