Africa is a very diverse continent with major health challenges that require dynamic, innovative approaches to ensure the future health of the populations.
We, at Sanofi, have been committed to the communities and people right across Africa for more than 50 years.
We feel it our responsibility to use our expertise, knowledge and experience to continuously seek out the most innovative, adapted approaches to improve access to medicines and healthcare for the people of Africa.
Whether it is preventing disease or managing illness, we strive to integrate the latest technologies to make our innovations and services accessible to millions of people around Africa.
The Sanofi Africa Competition for Health Techpreneurs therefore invites entrepreneurs to develop solutions for any of the challenges identified below.
How to enhance awareness, diagnosis and disease management of patients suffering from Diabetes?
Over two-thirds of adults living with diabetes in Africa are unaware of their condition.
Once diagnosed, a majority of patients remains untreated or uncontrolled, mainly because of access and affordability, lack of medical capabilities and patient education.
Scalable and affordable solutions are necessary to overcome those challenges.
How to improve the access to medicines in remote areas from supply chain management to alternative payment solutions?
Today we face difficulty to reach patients in remote areas.
Development of systems reaching the “Last Mile” through e-commerce, direct to a pharmacy, direct to patient and tailored payment solutions can provide better health support for people.
How to support decision-makers in getting a better usage of available health data?
Today, big data can be used for diseases recognition and prediction, for research purposes and to improve healthcare management.
We are looking for solutions supporting evidence-informed decision making and measuring the Public-Private Partnerships outcomes.
