About the project
THAT HEALTH AGAIN (“thea”) is a telemedicine platform operating throughout French-speaking and English-speaking Africa, as well as in French-speaking and English-speaking countries in Europe and America. It is designed to improve access to healthcare through digital technology. The idea is to allow each person, whether or not they are suffering, to consult with a doctor without needing to travel and receive a remote solution regardless of where they live. Thanks to thea, the patient can now consult securely with a doctor, as well as schedule an appointment.
Problem to solve: lack of doctors in Cameroon and Africa. According to the WHO, there is one doctor for every 10,000 people in Cameroon (2011). Thanks to the platform, a doctor can consult dozens of people without the need to travel.
The solution allows patients to stay where they are. Access to a doctor is facilitated by smartphones, regardless of where the patient is and at any time.
