The health system in Nigeria is lacking infrastructure, manpower, & health financing despite a high disease burden from communicable & non-communicable diseases. The high disease burden is worsened by poor information and minimal prevention efforts. The resultant effect being an overwhelmed system/workforce, substandard healthcare delivery, & poor health indices. With the COVID19 outbreak, this situation might reach a catastrophic level without innovative interventions that address this problem
Our innovation will address these problems through three key areas: health prevention campaign using existing social interaction platforms to reduce overall disease burden; use telemedicine to address primary healthcare and to follow up on secondary healthcare problems thereby decongesting facility usage; using data-driven technology and artificial intelligence to connect every Nigerian to a timely and effective healthcare service when needed.
