Sharing knowledge and building capacity to advance responsible artificial intelligence to improve global health research.

The knowledge hub functions as a:

  • Central repository for information, resources, and expertise related to artificial intelligence (AI) and global health research, including the latest research, best practices, and ethical considerations.
  • A community of practice for collaboration and information exchange among researchers, practitioners, policymakers, and stakeholders working in AI and global health from Asia, the Middle East and North Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean.


To support the development and implementation of AI technologies and solutions that improve health and health care, reduce health disparities, and enhance health systems, especially in the themes of Sexual, Reproductive, and Maternal Health (SRMH) and Epidemic/Pandemic Prevention Preparedness and Response (E/PPPR).

By fostering collaboration, knowledge sharing, and innovation, the AI for Global Health Research Knowledge Hub is helping to advance the field in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) and contribute to creating a healthier, more equitable world.

AI4GH Project

A research and development initiative led by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), it aims to harness the power of artificial intelligence (AI) to address global health challenges in developing countries.

Focus: developing and evaluating AI-powered solutions to improve healthcare delivery, increase access to medical information, and support health decision-making in low- and middle-income countries.

Through cutting-edge research, innovation, and knowledge sharing, and in collaboration with academic institutions, government agencies, and technology companies, we are advancing the development and deployment of AI in health and ensuring that the technology is ethical, equitable, and accessible to the people who need it most.
