French based tech company, Tech Care for All (TC4A), a social impact outfit dedicated to improving health outcomes in Africa and Asia, on Wednesday, 5 December 2018, announced the launch of its East Africa business, to be headquartered in Nairobi.
Aspiring to be a key contributor to the achievement of universal healthcare, the company marries technology with transformation of local health ecosystems across both public and private sectors.
Partnering with Kenyan firm, Savannah Informatics, a key-player in eHealth software, TC4A East Africa will offer solutions to help patients to access quality care, doctors and other providers to increase their skills, and health leaders to make informed decisions as they tackle challenging issues such as Kenya’s “double burden” of both infectious diseases and now increasingly, non-communicable diseases like hypertension and diabetes.
Tech Care for All CEO, Emmanuel Blin, said in a statement issued in Nairobi that “his company was attracted to Kenya by the country’s leadership in harnessing the power of digital tech in other sectors such as financial services and by its dynamic entrepreneurial culture.”
The company, which is registered in Belgium, has over the last two months entered the Indian and West African markets, choosing Senegal as a hub for the latter.
