Improving the Use of Integrated Management of Childhood Illness Protocols in Tanzania

Essa Mohamedali and Kalebu Gwalugano of the Tanzania AI Community in Tanzania will use ChatGPT-4 to develop a chatbot and support tool to help healthcare workers adhere to the Integrated Management of Child Illness (IMCI) guidelines and access updates and alternative treatment options by linking them to the latest research via their mobile phones. Access to formal training on the IMCI guidelines is limited for healthcare workers, particularly in the private sector, and its duration makes it prohibitively expensive for companies. They will convert the existing guidelines and algorithms into a chatbot version and use the GPT-4 framework to connect to the latest research. They will engage healthcare workers during the development stage and then implement and field test the support tool at three private health facilities in rural, urban, and peri-urban areas of Tanzania, to assess its usability.
