Title: Africa Telemedicine Industry Analysis: Ken Research

Africa Telemedicine Industry Analysis Ken
Albeit recent improvements in the countrys
health care services the health of large
proportion of Africans is still not at par. The
continent is deprived of basic healthcare
conditions which could be justified by the basic
indicators of health such as high child and
maternal mortality rates, low birth weights of
the children, and poor sanitation and healthcare
These problems are combined with lack of high
quality network infrastructure, which also
eliminates the possibility of better healthcare
opportunities with the help of telemedicine. Most
African countries have poor broadband and
internet infrastructure which is critical for the
roll out of telediagnosis, teleconsultation,
teletreatment and telemonitoring through
teleclinics. The countries are in urgent need for
upgradation of information and communication
(ICT) tools to improve the digital environment
and enable the feasibility of electronic
healthcare. Some countries such as South Africa
and Ethiopia have made significant progress in
their ICT infrastructure whereas countries such
as Burkina Faso and Nigeria have been slow in
implementing changes due to lack of political
will. Government of Kenya launched its first
phase of the National Telemedicine Initiative in
year 2013, which aims to improve access to better
healthcare for economically challenged people and
people living in rural regions of the country.
The telemedicine program is planned to provide a
platform that will be capable to help patients
and healthcare providers residing in rural areas
to have interaction with healthcare experts at
Kenyas main referral hospital, Kenyatta National
Hospital (KNH) with the help of
videoconferencing. mHealth can help in providing
primary healthcare services to low income medical
insurance holders and can assist in curbing the
inequality across public and private healthcare
services. In 2015, it was recorded that only 14
of the South African population had access to 57
of the total health expenditure of South Africa,
which clearly advocates the inequality
scenario. Amongst all the African states,
Nigeria has one of the highest numbers of health
professionals however the availability of the
midwives and nurses is still low which implicates
the lack of primary healthcare delivery. Moreover
the health professionals are cluttered in the
urban areas in southern part of country mainly in
Lagos, providing tertiary health care facilities.
  • Most of the healthcare services are provided by
    the government in Ghana and Ghana Health Services
    (GHS). The complete healthcare scenario has five
    levels of providers health posts which are first
    level primary care for rural areas, health
    centers and clinics, district hospitals, regional
    hospitals, and tertiary hospitals.
