Nigeria’s Helium health acquires Meddy, a doctor booking platform for undisclosed amount

Naira Metrics

Helium health, a Nigeria-based health tech startup has acquired Meddy, a Qatar-headquartered and UAE-based doctor booking platform for an undisclosed amount in a deal that appears unusual as it overlaps Africa and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC); two regions that rarely collaborate in tech.

The rare move by the Nigerian health provider is believed to be driven by the zeal to exploit other healthcare platforms whilst also taking advantage of a growing opportunity in the GCC region, where investment in digital infrastructure is expected to be 30% of the healthcare investment between 2023 to 2030.

As part of the deal, both health specialists are expected to play integral roles in Helium’s execution of its GCC strategy and operations as the leadership of both teams work together.
