Challenge AppAfrique: Afriqcare, the Doctolib of West Africa

Clap of the end for the 5th edition of the Challenge App Afrique RFI-France 24. More than 1,000 entrepreneurs and scientists from 43 countries have tried the adventure and offered their digital solutions to fight against epidemics. The Afriqcare project was crowned on Tuesday February 16. The Guinean platform offers health professionals and patients to manage consultations and appointments, but also to access the electronic health and vaccination record. Amara Diawara is at the conception of this Doctolib of French-speaking Africa. Meeting in Conakry with Sarah Sakho and Malick Diakité.

Guillaume Grallet, from Le Point magazine, is touring the world of digital anti-Covid solutions. In China, the manufacturer Umidigi hides thermometers in its smartphones. In New Zealand, the Ëlarm application detects weak signals using artificial intelligence. It lets you know you are sick even before the first symptoms appear. In France, we are betting on anti-virus textiles with Proneem, a Marseille biotech and the new tool from the manufacturer Calor.

At 24, Guillaume Rozier has his head in data: this computer prodigy tracks the Covid down to the data with the Covid Tracker platform, which he created last spring. Its curves, which doctors, journalists and institutions can no longer do without, take the pulse of an epidemic like no other. The young engineer is a fervent defender of open data, because making these vaccination data accessible to everyone is a democratic issue. He is the guest of # TECH24.

And in our Test24 sequence: folding, roll-up or stretch screens. This is the market in which manufacturers are positioning themselves at the moment. For good reason: these devices should jump from 3 million today to 94 million in circulation in 2025! Obviously, smartphones should be the big winners with more than 88% of applications. We test the rollable concept phone of the Oppo brand, darkly called: Oppo x 2021.
