Thank you!


The community of data scientists, entrepreneurs and healthcare workers who are exploring how data science and AI can improve health outcomes in Africa is growing rapidly. There is a wealth of innovative ideas, motivation and a deep understanding of the local health needs -yet there is a need for more opportunities to learn how to transition great ideas into impactful solutions; to connect across disciplines, sectors and geographies; and build a repository of evidence and lessons learned that can serve as a best practice guide for those innovating in the space.

The inaugural Data Science & AI Summit (DASH) in Africa will take place on March 10 & 11th in Kigali, Rwanda. Hosted by the Harvard Global Health Institute, Mbarara University of Science & Technology and other partners, It will inspire, teach and connect innovators in the health data science/AI community within Africa. Through a cross-disciplinary approach that empowers participants to customize the event content, we will explore lessons learned from previous digital health revolutions, highlight new challenges in the advent of AI and cultivate ideas and collaborations that will drive the ecosystem towards scalable impact. As a participant you will have an opportunity to meet with over 150 entrepreneurs, data scientists and healthcare workers across industry, academia and government.

We invite you register for the event here:
