Seed grants to commercialize responsible artificial intelligence innovations in global health have been awarded to projects based in Low-Middle Income Countries (LMICs)
The International Development Research Centre (IDRC) has funded 23 groundbreaking AI projects in LMICs. These projects have been created to improve sexual, reproductive, and maternal health and enhance prevention, preparedness, and response to epidemics and pandemics in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Caribbean. These start-ups focusing on health equity, gender equality, and inclusion will receive financial, technical, mentorship, skills, and networking support through an incubator program.
