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.
Here she discusses the field of digital health and the challenge that COVID represented in the research on these issues. In this interview, we discover the needs behind the "Alerte-Niger" and "SMS Afia Yetu" projects, the stages of their development, but also the obstacles encountered by the MSF teams (the health context, relations with partners, preconceived ideas about the population).
After several weeks of transit, made difficult by the restrictions linked to the Covid-19 pandemic, the equipment arrived in Gaza and the teams on site were able to be trained remotely to use the scanner. The project is now operational.
