Senegal Digital Health Market Executive Summary

The Senegal Digital Health market is projected to grow from $xxBn in 2022 to $xxBn by 2030, registering a CAGR xx% during the forecast period of 2022 - 2030. The Senegal healthcare spending for 2019 was $71 U.S. dollars per person and the total expected healthcare spending for the year 2050 is $123 U.S. dollars per person. It is considered to be relatively low compared to other countries in the region and globally. The government and other public sources fund the majority of healthcare expenditure in Senegal, with out-of-pocket payments accounting for a very minor fraction of overall healthcare expenditure.

Senegal has been focusing on digital health efforts to increase the availability of healthcare services as well as the effectiveness and quality of care. Telemedicine, electronic medical records, teleconsultation, mobile health services, data management, and tele-education for healthcare professionals are some examples of digital health projects in Senegal.

Senegal's health system employed roughly 50 digital health tools, at least 16 of which were already in use for COVID-19. To promote social and economic inclusion through technology, the government of Senegal developed a payment digitization strategy. Also, the government joined the Better Than Cash Alliance (a cooperation of governments, enterprises, and international bodies to accelerate growth through digital payments), with the help of the UN Capital Development Fund's “Mobile Money for the Poor” initiative. These initiatives also extended to the healthcare sector as the government introduced an innovative digital payments system for its Universal Health Insurance Agency.

Market Dynamics

Market Growth Drivers

The Ministry of Health and Social Action (MSAS) created the Digital Health Strategic Plan: 2018-2023, a blueprint defining Senegal's goals for transforming its digital health systems from fragmented, mostly paper-based systems to strong, interoperable, digitized systems. The government has proactively supported the creation and execution of digital healthcare programs, creating a favorable setting for industry growth. Moreover, increased access to healthcare services, improved quality and efficiency of healthcare delivery, growing use of smartphones and the internet, rising healthcare expenditure, and the COVID-19 pandemic have increased demand for digital health solutions.

Market Restraints

Factors such as a lack of infrastructure and technology, limited access to the internet and smartphones, a limited healthcare budget, a lack of trained staff and data management, a lack of standardization and interoperability, and security and privacy concerns are limiting the growth of the digital health market in Senegal.
