#Asia 15 top funded healthcare startups in Southeast Asia

//

Millions of people in Southeast Asia don’t have access to quality, affordable healthcare, and the shortage of funding for the region’s healthcare systems is partly to blame.

Health tech entrepreneur and consultant Will Greene writes that as of 2012, total public and private healthcare spend accounted for only 3.9 percent of Southeast Asia’s economy. This has affected investments in new hospitals and equipment, as well as the availability of skilled healthcare professionals.

Good thing is that we have web and mobile startups which are trying to fill the gaps. But these startups also require as much financial backing as they can get. So here’s a look at Southeast Asia’s 15 top-funded healthcare startups in Tech in Asia’s database.
