Health and Wellness

About This Collection

The sustainability category of health and wellness is both wide and deep. In this special collection our intention is to highlight voices of sustainability that are often lost in the sea of advertising by pharmaceutical and insurance companies for products and services. The information found on this site is not intended as recommendations for cures or a change in medical protocols, but, rather, an emphasis on innovative and fresh perspectives and ideas affecting the health and wellness of our citizens. Critical thinking, vision, and values are emphasized here on EarthSayers.

Affordable universal healthcare access through autonomous mobile clinics

418 views  Streamed live on Feb 7, 2023  #UHC #AIforHealth #AIforGood

At least half of the world’s population lacks access to essential health services and up to a third will remain underserved by 2030. Autonomous mobile clinics (AMCs) with ‘AI doctor’ functions may be key to reaching universal health coverage, particularly serving the “underserved”, the “hard-to-reach”, and the aging population. Accepted by the World Economic Forum as part of this year’s global health agenda: “How autonomous mobile clinics can help transform healthcare “, this AI for Good session focuses on developing self-driving vehicles as the next generation of healthcare delivery platforms, through which AI doctors and various applications could be configurated in various forms to suit the deployment situation.  

Illustrating this concept, a recent example of an AI doctor application screening monkeypox based on images taken from resource-constrained devices such as low-end mobile phones will be presented. Join this live discussion on how to further develop, open source and standardize AI doctors’ functions. Learn how AI can help scale this pilot in underserved communities through a demand-driven approach and multistakeholder partnerships will help set industry standards and scale up the benefits.
