This project is funded by the French Embassy in Nigeria under the Solidarity Fund for Innovative Projects with regards to the "Research in Health, Innovation, Information, and Artificial Intelligence (FSPI RS3I 2021-56). The purpose of the FSPI RS3I 2021-56 programme is to strengthen and improve the Nigerian Health System using digital innovations adaptive to the Nigerian environment.
This project aims to use digital health innovation to improve access to promotive, preventive, curative, rehabilitative and supportive health care programmes and services to population groups in Osun State. Nigeria. The activities of the project will improve access to primary and preventive health care services thus reducing the spread of some infectious/communicable diseases as well as drastically reducing the prevalence and increasing actions for control of non-communicable diseases among population groups in Osun State. Specifically, a digital-health platform will be developed and utilized in the creation of community/population database for health tracking and care: diagnostic and treatment support; management of referrals; inter professional communication, engagement and collaboration; education for health through improved access to educational and training materials for health promotion and communication with clients/service providers.
The Vice-Chancellor while appreciating the French Embassy for the grant award, again thanked the French Embassy in Nigeria for further supporting and strengthening OAU’s capacity-building efforts in research through the donation of a complete special-purpose Fabrication Laboratory, noting that the facility will go a long way to enhance the creativity and the capacity for innovation of the University’s young researchers towards contributing more to national and global development.
