Nala, a Riyadh, Saudi Arabia-based digital health service, raised $1m in its first financing.
The round was led by AlAraby Investment.
The company intends to use the funds to continue to grow its user base and further strengthen its position as the region’s top digital health service.
Led by Othman Abahussein, founder and CEO, Nala has just launched an artificial intelligence platform that enables instant medical diagnosis in Arabic. This new platform will be an addition to Nala’s current digital health service, which provides users with instant access to personalized healthcare through a mobile app. Over 50,000 people have used the app, which is available on Apple’s AppStore and Google’s PlayStore. All doctors are licensed by the Saudi Commission for Health Specialties.
