SITUATION

Project Everest is dedicated to helping realise the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Of these goals, Project Everest has been working on goal three, Good Health and Wellbeing. Project Everest commissioned multiple assessments over July 2017 and found the most viability for development and business is within Malawi, Africa.

MISSION

Project Everest is looking to develop micro-enterprise solutions and macro-enterprise solutions within Malawi that aims to reduce access barriers to health services. This is to be achieved through the development of technologies and how they can be applied to the underdeveloped context of Africa. As the current business ideas are very primative in their conceptualisation, a lot of thought and iteration is required to move it forward and make it worthy of heavy investment of resources (both financial and human).

OBJECTIVES
  • To continue to investigate as many health-related issues as possible in order to uncover the central areas where impact can be made
  • To test the accuracies and map the advantages/disadvantages of a cognitive learning medical diagnosis app
  • To develop and expand new and existing relationships within the health sector, government and communities
  • To iterate and develop the business mechanics of the existing MedEd concept that ties into the pre-primary care app
OPPORTUNITY

This project and business concept has incredible potential, as it allows for the use of exponential technologies and the benefits associated with a cognitive learning app. Reducing access barriers to health services will save money, time and rate of misdiagnosis by under qualified medical practitioners. With testing and investigation into the accuracy of pre-primary care diagnosis, Project Everest aims to reduce capacity strains in hospitals, NGO clinics and communities by 40-80%*.

*As time goes on the and app becomes more proficient with other add-ons that can do basic pathology, the capacity strain will move towards the 80% mark.
