About the project
LeDocta.com is a public information platform designed to provide factual medical information that also takes into account African realities. The platform unites general practitioners and specialists working to provide information based on field experience and the socio-cultural and economic contexts. It is a platform for practical medical information and e-consultancy.
The absence of social security in French-speaking Africa forces patients to make choices based on finances. In practice, this leads them to ask many critical questions, such as, “Based on this symptom, where should I go? and Will getting this treated ruin us financially?” Furthermore, when leaving the hospital, patients do not always understand everything the doctor has explained. This platform allows us to raise awareness, educate, advise and, most importantly, provide guidance, serving as a compass so that the patient can enjoy better healthcare.
