Transforming Health - mobile applications +cloud solutions to address animal +human health issues

The VetAfrica application has been released and is available to download. Cojengo are now working to deliver the product roadmap based on specific user requirements.

Using a combination of epidemiological and computer science to address issues of lack of professional veterinary care in the developing world, Cojengo have designed, implemented and launched, VetAfrica, a mobile application that helps to diagnose, collect data and report field cases of eight endemic cattle diseases of East Africa.

Users input information regarding themselves and their animals plus the symptoms observed. The application then calculates the most likely diseases and lists them with their associated score. For each disease, advice on treatment including drugs and dosages are provided. Each individual animal cases is geo-referenced and this together with diagnostic information, data of animal identification, ownership and presenting clinical signs are sent to a central database.
