USING AI AND MACHINE LEARNING TO PERSONALISE AND IMPROVE PERINATAL HEALTH IN ZANZIBAR

Zanzibar faces high levels of neonatal mortality as a result of delays or inability to seek care and biological risk factors that go undetected due to lack of contact with providers. Moreover, the health system in general suffers from a lack of resources, especially for Community Health Workers (CHWs).

The Government of Zanzibar is implementing a national digitally-supported community health program to provide essential health, nutrition, and development services to pregnant women and children.

In that framework, machine learning (ML) is an innovative approach that has potential to improve effectiveness and efficiency of service delivery of Maternal Neonatal and Child Health (MNCH).
