Innovation Revolution in Indigenous Healthcare Knowledge Systems
There is a tendency to neglect indigenous African knowledge systems when it comes to tackling healthcare challenges in Africa. We propose to use ICT to revolutionize accessibility to African knowledge systems that are effective in promoting wellness in Africa and globally. We propose the development of an African Virtual Clinic that will specialize in providing free medical recommendations to patients based on safe indigenous knowledge systems.
