About this event

Africa's Talking stands at the forefront of technological innovation, offering a suite of communication APIs that enable developers to integrate SMS, USSD, voice, and other channels into their applications. In the context of healthcare, these communication tools hold immense potential to revolutionize how healthcare services are accessed, delivered, and managed.

In Nigeria and many parts of Africa, access to healthcare remains a significant challenge, particularly in rural and underserved communities. Limited infrastructure, scarce resources, and geographical barriers often hinder individuals from receiving timely medical attention. However, Africa's Talking products can serve as powerful solutions to overcome these obstacles.

You will also gain knowledge on how to leverage Africa's Talking APIs in solving and building educational technologies.
