Tobias Strålin, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Cardo Health

For the early detection and treatment of health conditions, easy access to primary healthcare is crucial. Today, however, Africa has the lowest patient-to-doctor ratio with 0.23 doctors for every 10,000 people, compared to 84.2 doctors in the most developed countries.

Digital solutions offer a great opportunity, offering affordable care to millions of people.

Kena Health App to thrive in bottleneck health systems

Kena Health targets the millions of uninsured citizens who are dependent on stressed public health systems using a B2C freemium business model. The platform offers on-demand and scheduled consultations with nurses, general practitioners, and mental health professionals.

Kena Health takes a leap forward in offering a complete digital primary care platform. The app has first launched in South Africa, for further roll-out in several African countries in the future.

Cardo Health to profit from increasing market demand

The popularity of telemedicine spiked during the Covid-19 pandemic, growing 78 times in April 2020 according to Mckinsey & Co. With many fast-growing economies and a rapidly increasing internet penetration, investors are turning to Africa as a major growth opportunity.

Kena Health aims to become the leading digital health player in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Tobias Strålin, Founder and CEO at Cardo Health, said, “With an excellent team, technology, and growing traction, Kena Health has great potential to become the leading digital health player in Sub Saharan Africa while making a truly positive change for millions of people”
