As technology continues to evolve, it is becoming increasingly apparent that access to and use of advanced technology is essential to improving health outcomes. The World Health Organization has identified digital health interventions and predictive tools in healthcare as key accelerators in achieving the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), especially the goal 3 of ensuring good health and well-being for all.
In recognition of this, The HealthTech Hub Africa launches the #AIforHealth challenge to promote innovative solutions that utilize artificial intelligence (AI) in a responsible and appropriate manner to advance health outcomes in Africa.
The #AIforHealth challenge presents an opportunity for technology innovators, community providers, grassroots organisations, and governments to come together to validate and refine implementable and sustainable solutions to help improve health outcomes in Africa.
By providing a platform for collaboration and innovation through technology, the HTHA seeks to support the creation of solutions that address the unique challenges faced by the African healthcare landscape.
