400 doctors serve a nation of 10 million people.That’s only one doctor for every 25,000 Rwandans. Rwanda suffers from one of the world’s highest maternal death and infant mortality rates.
By implementing a revolutionary computerized medical diagnostic system, CIOs Without Borders can let one technican and one nurse quickly figure out what’s wrong with almost any patient and determine a treatment plan. Used with great success in rural India for the last five years, this system must be rolled out in a vastly different environment.
This effort builds upon the pioneer-ing medical system developed by Abraham George, an expert in international finance now renowned for his philanthropic work. CIOs Without Borders will collaborate with Stevens Insititute of Technology, Montefiore Health Center, and the Rwandan Ministry of Health.
Field work may be required of volunteers.
