Ada launches first AI health guidance app in Swahili

The world’s first artificial intelligence (AI) based health guidance app in Swahili has been launched to help improve healthcare for more than 100 million people in East Africa. Ada Health has developed the app, which combines a medical database with intelligent reasoning technology to help users understand what might be causing their symptoms. The free app then provides patients with guidance about what steps they should take, helping them make informed decisions about their health, while complementing and supporting existing healthcare services. Berlin-based Ada Health said that it had developed the app to address the lack of access to basic health services in the area of Africa where Swahili is commonly spoken. This includes several countries, among them Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Mozambique and Somalia, where Ada hops that the app will particularly improve health information and advice for young people and their families. The Swahili version of the app, which is available on both iOS and Android, has been developed in partnership with Fondation Botnar, a Swiss foundation focused on improving health and wellbeing of young people in low- and middle-income countries through technology.
