South Africa, Healthcare
Jalil Allabadi of Altibbi has spent the past two years developing one of the largest and most interactive online medical health portals in Arabic.
As the son of a Jordanian doctor, Jalil was interested in healthcare from an early age. After receiving a bachelor’s of science in Industrial Engineering from the University of Bologna, Jalil decided to pursue a career in pharmaceuticals. He moved to the US to pursue an MBA from the Thunderbird School of Global Management.
Jalil returned to Jordan after graduation to place his father’s content online, on what would become Altibbi.com. Jalil soon realized that there was a significant knowledge gap between medical experts and the average Arabic-speaker and there was potential for something greater than a basic medical dictionary.
Today, Altibbi’s website provides users with access to information from health professionals in a user-friendly, confidential, and timely manner. The site hosts an Arabic-English dictionary, a medical directory listing approved medical entities in the MENA region and abroad, a symptom checker, hundreds of health related videos and articles, and an innovative doctor-patient social networking platform that allows users to have their health questions answered online by approved doctors.
Altibbi is in a strong position to be the leading provider of healthcare information in the Arab world. Jalil has been receptive to advice and mentorship throughout the selection process and is committed to contributing to Jordan’s GDP through the healthcare sector.
