African healthcare platform Bisa gets its name from the Ghanian Twi word for "ask" and is available for iOS, Android and Windows Phone devices. The mobile app aims to make healthcare more accessible to the masses while addressing patients' privacy concerns -- especially those centered around sexually transmitted diseases which can have a stigma surrounding them.

Allowing patients to directly interact with medical experts via their mobile device, Bisa is ideal for those who are unable to afford regular doctor's office or hospital visits and works to offer quick diagnosis results of various issues while allowing for back to back conversations between a user and certified healthcare professionals. Once more info on a condition is garnered, Bisa users are able to access a database of local doctors should they require an in-person follow-up.

Overall, the startup believes that "healthcare is a basic amenity which everyone should be able to access and seeks to address this disparity in access to healthcare."
