Startup using AI to eliminate Malaria receives innovation prize

South Africa’s Department of Health said that more than 600 000 malaria-related deaths occur in Africa, most of which are children under the age of 5 years old. Around 60% of these are clinical cases, and about 80% of malaria deaths occur in sub-Saharan Africa. Malaria constitutes a major barrier to social and economic development in the region. Africa is most certainly one of the regions which will directly benefit from this development by startup ZzappMalaria.
