I was introduced to the Kena app 2 days ago and needed a script and Doctor's note for a bit of flu. The process took me 5 min to get both.

Julie-Anne Bell


The most convenient and efficient way of consulting health practitioners.

Nomcebo Tshabalala


From the first chat with the nurse to the consultation with the Dr, everything was great. The Dr was friendly, thorough and detailed. It was a great service overall!

Portia Mashinini


Awesome app with friendly doctors and nurses. Very convenient.

Cushorelle Adams


This has to be the best app ever! The consultant was not more than 15 min... I highly recommend this app. There are no long queues. Thank you so much Kena health!

Lorrain Sibiya


Good service! I would recommend this to friends and family. I feel like this really bridges the gap for people who are unable to get direct access to a Healthcare professional. Service delivery is on point!
