The DIDIDA project has been featured on BBC World Service’s “Tech Life” podcast!
In this episode, the project’s impact is showcased as it brings affordable and portable disease detection to sub-Saharan Africa.
The technology, as explained by Professor Jon Cooper from the University of Glasgow, Dr. Harriet Mpairwe from the Uganda Virus Research Institute, and Dr. Gregory Ganda, the Minister of Health for Kisumu County in Kenya, is a game-changer—utilizing lateral flow devices connected to mobile phones to detect up to five diseases. The results can be instantly shared, creating real-time infection dashboards and revolutionizing healthcare delivery.
