UWS have partnered with universities in Pakistan and France on an EU funded project - Sensing, Artificial Intelligence, and Edge Networking towards Rural Health Monitoring (SAFE-RH).
The intent of SAFE-RH in Pakistan is to support the provision of health care services to reduce the mortality rate of women and children, to timely address the maternity related issues in remote areas and to monitor elderly people.
Earlier this week, UWS welcomed Counsel General Pakistan and delegates from three representative Universities of Pakistan to share the project developments.
Prof Naeem Ramzan is the coordinator of the SAFE-RH project and leading its research and development activities. Prof Ramzan said: “There is no doubt that there is lack of health facilities in rural areas and there is a real appetite for technology that can help to provide health services in these challenging areas. SAFE-RH project is working towards to achieve these goals. The solutions demonstrated here is real innovative and it is pathway to success to develop real-time remote health monitoring system using AI/machine learning that will not only improve healthcare facilities in remote areas but reduce mortality rate of infants and women.”
