This study examines the relationship and causality between ICT and health in Africa for the period 1995-2015 using panel generalized method of moments (GMM) and Today amamoto causality tests. The empirical results show that ICT has a positive and statistically significant relationship with health, showing that the higher the levels of ICT, the higher the level of health. There is also a bi-directional causality between ICT and health. This indicates that ICT spurs health which, in turn, boosts ICT usage even further.
