Tito Ovia

Head, Public Sector Growth


Tito’s childhood dream was to provide world-class care to as many people as she could across Africa. She has a degree in Biomedical Sciences from the University of Manchester. Today, Tito helps lead Helium Health, Africa’s largest health-tech provider, as it builds the technology and data infrastructure to make it easier for anyone, regardless of their social class or economic status, to access quality healthcare on the continent. In her role as Head of Public Sector Growth at Helium Health, she is fostering public-private partnerships that accelerate Africa’s transition to technology and the data-driven healthcare system. Her work in African healthcare has helped make her a Forbes 30 Under 30 recipient and a winner of the Future Africa Award for Disruption.

When Tito is not working on fixing healthcare in Africa, she is occupied with Feminist Coalition, the women’s rights advocacy group she helped found that is promoting equality for women in the Nigerian society, with a core focus on education, financial freedom and representation in public office.

Helium Health is building the digital infrastructure that will power world-class healthcare services across emerging markets. The company is on a mission to accelerate Africa's transition to a technology and data-driven healthcare sector.

The company is leveraging the vast amount of data we are amassing through our solutions to empower healthcare providers to run more efficiently and make better decisions with actionable data. Public health stakeholders will also be empowered with detailed insights into health-related trends to enable proper resource allocation and oversight. Nationwide data concerning the state of health of citizens would be available in real-time at the touch of the fingers.

Helium Health was founded in 2016 with our flagship product, Helium Health EHR, which is a cloud-based/offline health records and hospital management (EHR/HMIS) solution that is

simple, robust, easy-to-adopt, highly customizable and built around the peculiarities of the Nigerian market. Today, Helium Health is the premier Health Tech Company in Africa, providing

a suite of cutting-edge technology solutions for all healthcare stakeholders in emerging markets.

The solutions include HeliumPay (a billing and payments solution that will help healthcare facilities accept payments from multiple sources), HeliumCredit (a quick and easy way for

hospitals to access instant, collateral-free loans).

The company’s vision to power Africa's healthcare technology necessitated rapid expansion to cover the region. Helium Health is helping 5000 medical professionals to provide care to over 165,000 patients monthly across emerging markets.
