Though the full impact of COVID-19 is yet to be known, it’s clear that critical gaps in Africa’s healthcare systems have since been exacerbated by the crisis. But as well as challenges, the virus has brought with it a renewed sense of urgency for health-system reforms.
Technology has a significant role to play in revamping healthcare on the continent, ranging from AI chatbots aiding self-diagnosis to telemedicine applications enabling long-distance consultation. In this first event of the Generation Innovation series, we’ll be bringing together innovators from across Africa who are devising tech solutions to contain the spread of the virus, as well as help us imagine a better healthcare reality post-COVID.
Join us to hear from some of Africa’s brightest young entrepreneurs about what they are doing to make sure the continent's healthcare goes forwards and not backwards.
