Artificial intelligence to improve quality of life for people with haemophilia in Africa

Awa Babington-Ashaye

Can artificial intelligence power digital solutions to support people living with haemophilia in low-resource regions? That is the question that led molecular biochemist, virologist and PhD candidate Awa Babington-Ashaye to propose the development of an Artificial Intelligence (AI) chatbot for haemophilia in several African countries. The innovative NNHF-supported project was approved for funding in April 2021 and is currently underway in partnership with Prof Antoine Geissbuhler, Head of the division of eHealth and Telemedicine of the Geneva University Hospitals (Hôpitaux Universitaires de Genève – HUG).
