AI Revolutionizing Global Health: Innovations and Impacts on FBOs

June 20 at 9:00 am to 10:15 am EDT/Washington, DC / 1:00 to 2:15 pm GMT

Join us as we explore the transformative role of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in global health and what it means for faith-based organizations in resource-constrained areas.

We’ll talk about AI applications such as:

  • Language translation for enhanced communications with patients and communities
  • Population health surveillance for proactive disease management
  • AI-driven diagnostics aiding in early detection and treatment
  • Optimization of drug supply logistics for efficient healthcare delivery, and
  • Innovative approaches for training and upskilling healthcare workers using AI-powered tools.

What does the use of these applications mean for efficiency, privacy, and equity? We’ll hear from a panel of experts from diverse sectors addressing key questions in this uncharted territory. We’ll hear from:

  • Alice Hau, Machine Learning Engineer, Block; Technologist and AI Entrepreneur
  • Jon Hirst, Chief Innovation Officer, SIL International
  • Peter Yeboah, Executive Director, Christian Health Association of Ghana

CCIH Faith for Climate Resilient Health Consortium Launch

June 25 at 10:00 am to 11:15 am EDT/Washington, DC / 2:00 to 3:15 pm GMT

When weather-related disasters strike, faith-based health organizations are among the first to respond. FBOs have a strong legacy of humanitarian response as direct health service providers and are trusted by the communities they serve.

Yet, faith actors may not be part of local, regional, and national health sectors and emergency planning and resource allocations. Many health-related FBOs want to address and adapt to climate change but don’t have dedicated resources to respond. CCIH developed the Faith Consortium for Climate Resilient Health (Faith4CRH) to increase climate resilience with faith-based health partners in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC).

Register to join us for the launch of the consortium and watch for more details soon!
