Cameroon: Application connects patients with doctors

With over 12, 600 COVID-19 cases reported in Cameroon, many vulnerable people in the country fear leaving their homes for medical treatment for other conditions, concerned about being exposed to the virus in a health facility

But thanks to a new application called IDocta, patients are now linked to medics who can visit them at home.

IDocta also permits patients book an appointment and choose a doctor.

It works with more than 200 doctors, both GPs and specialist physicians.
