African startup Vula is a healthcare specialist referral platform, aiming to help patients access the care of experts in a variety of medical fields more seamlessly than ever before. The platform connects primary healthcare workers to specialists in fields including ophthalmology, cardiology, orthopedics, HIV research, neurology, dermatology, pediatrics, oncology and more.

With an aim to "improve existing referral systems by putting primary healthcare workers directly in touch with on-call specialists," Vula aims to make this often time-consuming and stressful process quicker so that patients can get the care they need faster.

Accessible through an app that is available on both iOS and Android devices, Vula eliminates the middle man between healthcare workers and specialists to provide faster care while addressing urgency and even allowing for emergency appointments if needed.
