DabaDoc, the Morocco-based healthtech platform connecting patients and health professionals in Africa, has raised an undisclosed funding from Axa to help enhance the company’s footprint in its existing geographies and further develop its offering.
DabaDoc’s Egyptian competitor Vezeeta also just raised a huge funding round to expand in the MENA region.
According to Zineb Drissi-Kaitouni, CEO and Co-Founder of DabaDoc, “We are at the inception of a disruption in the way healthcare is delivered. Having AXA as a shareholder adds an important dimension to our mission of democratizing access to healthcare. We are excited about further growth prospects with this partnership and the expertise provided by AXA in our existing and future markets.”
DabaDoc is the largest online medical appointment booking platform in Africa. DabaDoc is a free service for patients, allowing them to easily find and book an appointment 24/7 with an available doctor nearby that meets their needs.
DabaDoc was founded in 2014, with the clear mission to connect patients and doctors, substantially improving the doctor discovery process for patients and helping doctors optimize their schedule.
Philippe Rocard, CEO of AXA Insurance Morocco said, “In the midst of a digital revolution in Morocco, customer expectations are rapidly evolving. AXA is therefore committed to transforming its role of indemnity payer into a partner facilitating the lives of its customers thanks to its services. As such, we are happy to contribute to the growth of DabaDoc, an amazing Moroccan startup. DabaDoc offers innovative services in the healthcare space, especially by facilitating patient journeys.”
