The failure by traditional malaria treatment protocols to diagnose, treat and manage malaria and fever causing high mortality rate due to malaria epidemic in sub-Saharan Africa. About 200 million malaria cases are reported annually in Africa alone with 400,000 deaths in Uganda recorded in 2017 by WHO. Children below 5 years and pregnant mothers are mostly susceptible with lack of access to medical diagnostic services attributed to high mortality rates.
The malaria bot is a mobile phone artificial intelligence (AI) powered software that can be used in treatment and diagnosis of malaria. The app rapidly screens the patient based on history and generates provisional diagnoses. It then refers the patient to our self-testing kit which employs photo-magnetic technology to detect hemozoin, a crystallized bi-product of malaria parasites to confirm and generate a definitive diagnosis upon which it prescribes treatment drugs for malaria.
