We here in Scandinavia have many interesting and innovative companies offering IT and healthcare solutions, sometimes in the form of medical devices or digital solutions, so called D-Health solution. Africa is developing fast but also face healthcare challenges. As we have travelled in both South East Asia and in Africa we can see needs for more people such as doctors and nurses, but also technology and new innovation to assist the rural areas with better healthcare.
Clean water is an important health issue. Almost 1 million people in Africa die due to diarrhoeal diseases from unclean water supplies. most likely the figures for South East Asia and Southern Asia is same. Malaria alone causes 750.000 to 800.000 deaths a year, and tuberculosis around 500.000 deaths. If you include HIV/AIDS death we are looking at some 2.5 million deaths in Africa. Besides that there are issues with maternal and perinatal mortality. Almost 1 million babies die around childbirth every year, and maternal mortality claims another 200.000 mothers.
We are working with companies who can help with water management and water purification, a very important healthcare issue but we are also working with IT Companies looking for business opportunities in Africa. They have hospital management system along with special HIV electronic patient record software and clinical management system for use by discrete or integrated sexual health and contraceptive health services. We are looking for suitable projects and business opportunities for these companies in Africa.
