Accessing quality healthcare in a country like Nigeria could be a worrisome experience. Medical Doctors make up less than 0.1% of a population which is estimated to be over 150 million people. It is obvious that the doctor-patient ratio is nothing to boast about. This amongst other challenges such as cost of accessing healthcare, bureaucracy in hospitals, wrong cultural beliefs, misinformation by quacks and tradomedicals, etc. all essentially contribute to the declining health status in the country. With the advent in telecoms and increase in number of people having access to the internet and related services, the vision to augment the healthcare service delivery through the use of a platform such as this was conceived.
