Reimagining Africa’s Post-Pandemic Healthcare Through AI: A Roadmap to Maturity
Post-Pandemic
In the past, Africa has often been a bit of a backwater in terms of technology and medical healthcare, but it is fast playing catch up thanks in part to the COVID-19 crisis. The African continent has embraced new technologies post pandemic and is well on its way to implementing a first-rate healthcare system that is the envy of the world.

Can AI Drive Inclusion of Africans on the Genomic Database?
Emerging Market
Africa is under-represented on global genomic repositories, yet researchers have discovered genetic variants that can unlock new vistas for drug discovery in the genome of African populations. While closing existing paucities to foster the inclusion of Africa’s unique genetic datasets can be challenging, artificial intelligence can significantly help overcome such genetic biases.

Enhancing Clinical Trials in Africa with AI: New Insights for Biopharma
Generic
Africa’s biopharma market is the world’s fastest-growing and will be worth US$70 billion by 2030. Africa’s allure is rapid growth, not market size, and this is good news for big pharma keen on increasing market share in the second-largest continent’s booming biopharma terrain. Africans are under-represented on the clinical trial map, contributing less than 20 percent to all clinical trials conducted globally. Can Artificial intelligence (AI) solve Africa’s clinical trial challenges?

How Can Big Data, RWD, and RWE Upgrade Healthcare in Africa?
Optimization
Healthcare delivery remains one of the core components of a nation’s health system. An efficient healthcare delivery system is data-driven, and its professionals must access data to diagnose conditions, treat diseases, prescribe medications, and offer consultations. Africa’s lack of data storage infrastructure, inefficient health data management, shortage of trained healthcare professionals, low healthcare budgets, and poor service integration is stopping data realize their full potential in Africa’s expansive health terrain. Use of data and real-world evidence (RWE) in Africa’s healthcare delivery system is an untapped goldmine.
