Kenyan e-health startup TIBU Health, a digital platform that decentralises primary outpatient care to bring it directly to patients, has raised a seed funding round to help it scale its operations.
TIBU is an on-demand platform that connects people to healthcare workers in real-time, who deploy to a location and time of the patient’s choosing.
The startup has served over 10,000 patients since its launch, rolled out a comprehensive home-based vaccination service alongside Amref Health Africa, launched health packages focused on chronic diseases, and secured a variety of key partnerships, and it has now taken on a seed funding round to help it grow further.
The funding comes from Blue Haven Initiative and Kepple Africa Ventures, the latter being a returning investor. The investment amount was undisclosed but the round was oversubscribed by 100 per cent.
TIBU will also be setting up a high-tech micro-laboratory to process its clients’ samples in-house.
