WP4 m-Health Knowledge sharing pilot
The goal of this work package is to initiate, in Senegal, the sustainable architecture designed in WP1, through a 2-cycle process enabling both the early exploitation of results from other WPs and the establishment of a feedback loop beneficial to the whole project.
Health services have been identified as good candidates in terms of social impact, needs and sustainability. The proposed overarching approach consists in expanding the infectious diseases surveillance and health personnel training through mobile phone in Senegal. The objective will be to mitigate the impact of infectious diseases on the population in remote area, by linking peripheral biomedical laboratories to regional and national reference laboratories.
The project consists of developing a diseases surveillance system and training for laboratory technicians in remote areas. This system will facilitate the data transfer and improve the level of knowledge in this area.
