About the sponsor


LeDocta is a business that was created to help democratise medical information and provide medical advice with the objective of improving the doctor-patient relationship. On a continent where access to caregivers is limited and consultations are often quite short, we want to raise awareness, educate and advise, because we believe that, when it comes to health, information is the first medicine to take.
