In late 2013 I was in the Central hospital of North West Region Cameroon for consultation which took me roughly six hours before I was attended to, so I was astonished, after I left the hospital, I told myself i will come up with a platform which better the health condition of my people and extend it to the whole of Africa. In the year 2014 I started developing a conceptual model for the platform and come in contact with some medical friends which some of them encourages me and others discourages me of the idea, so i did not surrender or relax, i started getting in touch with some people to get statistics for the way forward. In early 2015 i develop the first mobile application and submit it for the Africa Android Challenge and i was awarded a certification as a finalist with the application name "Medical Care library (MCL)", i was happy and motivated with this honor for the first time ever. My other competitors in the challenge do testify on my idea show case and how it has help them with their health problems. My formal boss of Globexcam company ltd encourages me with a hosting account free for two years and an sms platform to incorporate in my mobile application platform.
