Telemedicine and Digital Clinics

A collaboration with the Government of Kenya and Huawei, this project improves access to healthcare services in rural and remote communities. Local clinics can communicate with medical specialists through video-conferencing so that patients no longer need to travel to distant facilities for diagnosis or treatment.

IMPACT

Over 200,000 residents on Lamu Island will benefit from the collaboration through not having to travel long distances to obtain expert medical assistance and plans are in place to expand the scope of this project to other areas outside Lamu.
