Evert Verschueren's insight:

I have found a about the company where it is showing its dedication to a better healthcare system in Africa. They are helping doctors and hospitals in Tanzania (and also other countries in Africa) by offering them basic management systems. 

 

*Objectives?

Just like a lot of other sectors in Africa, the healthcare sector isn't very developed. A lot of patients (a lot of queing), and no sharing of information between several doctors is the problem. With the new system, docters can now record all the information about a client and send it to a specialist if necessary.
