Interview with Natalie Roberts : COVID-19 Alert and SMS Afia Yetu projects

Natalie Roberts is the director of studies at Crash and program manager at the MSF Foundation. During the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, she was involved in the implementation of two digital health applications.

    Cervical cancer : when AI helps improve diagnosis

    Cervical cancer is the second deadliest cancer in low- and middle-income countries (1). In Malawi in East Africa, where MSF operates, over 4,000 Malawian women fall sick with cervical cancer every year.
