Mobile app for telemedicine startup Yapili

YAPILI provides new opportunities for many Africans to connect to local and western health professionals in an efficient and confidential way. In the societies, where professional health advice is hard & expensive to get, YAPILI offers affordable, anonymous and secure channel to seek medical care in case of pregnancy & family planning, diabetes & hypertension, HIV & sexual health, mental health and generic health questions.


The service introduces online access to qualified medical advice for residents of selected countries in Africa. The Yapili mobile app was developed by First Line Software and is designed for use on Android devices. A beta-version of the app has been published in the Google Play store and is available for use by physicians and patients.


Communication between a doctor and a patient is provided via the chat screen. During the development process we incorporated many gamification elements, to make it easy and fun to use the application.


During the pilot phase, the Yapili service will cover seven countries: Kenya, Tanzania, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, South Africa and Nigeria, where there are about 50 million English-speaking potential users with internet connections. Once the beta-test has concluded, Yapil plans to scale the platform for use beyond countries in Africa.

The Yapili service has several functions: it provides the patient’s connection to a doctor for online consultation; maintains electronic patient records and aggregates data in an anonymous form for analytical reports which are planned to be created in the future.

YAPILI has been named the winner of Seedstars Gaborone 2017, The Hague Innovators Challenge 2018 and will now go on to represent the Southern African country at the Seedstars Summit in Switzerland to compete for up to $1 million in equity investment.
