Connected Diagnostics used in Samburu to treat Brucellosis
Today, digital technology offers huge opportunities to bring healthcare within reach of those who, until now, have been structurally excluded, and allows us to do it more efficiently and at an unprecedented pace. In the remote (yet well-connected) Samburu County, Kenya, a study was conducted to test the feasibility of Connected Diagnostics (ConnDx). This mobile phone-based intervention links on-site RDTs for brucellosis and malaria with digital financing and healthcare provision measures.
