The Science For Africa Foundation (SFA Foundation) is seeking expert input through a landscape survey and will convene key stakeholders to dialogue and develop interventions to address policy gaps in AI and Data Science for global health in Africa.
The Science For Africa Foundation (SFA Foundation) is a non-profit, public charity organization that supports, strengthens and promotes science innovation in Africa. The goal of the SFA Foundation is to address the continent’s most pressing developmental needs by generating scientific knowledge that solves problems and informs decision-making.
SFA Foundation is seeking to build an understanding of the gaps in national, regional and continental policies for the development, application and governance of Artificial intelligence (AI) and Data Science in global health across the continent. Emphasis is placed on but not limited to policies for data science and AI applications for Genomics, Epidemics and Pandemics, Clinical Trials, and Drug development. Understanding of the policy trends and gaps will inform stakeholders to influence policy, and strengthen the research and innovation landscape.
If you work on the intersection of Artificial Intelligence, Data Science and Health, you are invited to participate in the Survey of the Landscape of AI and Data Science Policy for Health in Africa:
Furthermore, the SFA Foundation will convene key stakeholders to dialogue and develop interventions to address policy gaps in AI and Data Science for global health in Africa on June 28-29, 2023 in a hybrid event.
