    These days, many of us use Google to self-diagnose when we experience strange physical symptoms, but we often experience a niggling doubt about whether what we’ve read on an online forum or portal is accurate or trustworthy. Shimba Technologies’ MedAfrica mobile application, available across the African continent, allows users to diagnose their health problems more reliably with the swipe of a finger. In rural areas, where access to health services may be tricky, this is a valuable tool. It also provides users with a directory of doctors and hospitals within reach.
