E-health services are rapidly expanding across the continent. They offer an appealing alternative due to the shortage of hospitals and health centers in some regions of Africa.

Mavimpy Care is an e-health solution developed by a Congolese startup, enabling users to access a variety of health services online through its web platform. Based in Lubumbashi, the startup was founded in 2020 by Gracien Kibala, Osée Badi, and Lepetit Mashini.

"The genesis of my business venture and my burning entrepreneurial spirit can be traced back to a few years ago. It was during a simple search for a dentist for a routine checkup. As a matter of habit, I turned to Google and entered the keyword ‘dentist DRC.’ To my great surprise, the search results displayed dentists from America, Europe, and other parts of the world. Google even presented me with names of dentists from Europe and other countries. However, not a single result was found for the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC)," Gracien Kibala told PataTech media in February 2024.

Through its web platform, users can consult a doctor online, search for hospitals or doctors in specific cities. To access the healthtech's services, users need to create an account by providing details such as their first name, last name, email address, phone number, and password. Once registered, users can access the various services offered in Congolese cities where the platform is available.

Mavimpy Care has integrated artificial intelligence into its services. Gracien Kibala explained, "We are delving into artificial intelligence with the connected bracelet that digitizes the medical record. We personalize your health file. Our connected bracelets provide health information, requiring only a QR code to access your medical history."

On the platform, users can also access articles offering tips and advice on managing health situations effectively and preventing some ailments.
