The official handover ceremony of our Computer-Aided Detection for COVID-19 artificial intelligence software (CAD4COVID) took place in Ga West Municipal Hospital in Ghana. The Dutch Ambassador to Ghana officially handed over CAD4COVID to Mr. Patrick Kuma Aboagye, the Director General of the Ghana Health Service, who received the equipment on behalf of the Ministry of Health.
In Ghana, CAD4COVID has been installed in 51 district and regional hospitals spread across 12 regions. This installation was achieved by Universal Delft. The ceremony was attended by health workers from the Ghana Health Service, the Ministry of Health, Food & Drugs Authority (FDA), National Tuberculosis Control Program (NTP), Chief of Amasaman, amongst others.
The project was made possible by the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) who supported this project.
CAD4COVID is a software that uses AI to facilitate the triage of COVID-19 cases. The software has been installed onto the black box pictured, so it can be used totally offline.
