Welcome

We’re a nonprofit, fully volunteer group assembled to help governments tackle the Covid-19 pandemic using technology accessible to everyone, with or without a smartphone or internet access.

To ensure every person has convenient, free access to report potential Covid-19 symptoms for themselves and their loved ones across and to ensure anyone with symptoms or potential contact feels supported.

 

USSD Platform

We have developed a USSD platform for the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) to improve Covid-19 symptom reporting. Through our solution, users dial *258*258# for free from any mobile phone in Nigeria and report their symptoms based on the menu provided.

Our solution makes it easy for people to report symptoms where there is no internet, without smartphones. And it's free.

Automated Triage & Follow-up

We provide and manage, working with federal and state agencies, an automated triage and follow-up platform using SMS, Whatsapp and programmable voice.

We have also developed the Ekiti Covid-19 Information Platform, following up daily on users self-reporting symptoms and providing support and guidance.

COVID-19 Contact Tracing

We are offering to support federal and state agencies on Contact Tracing programs, to encourage people with potential exposure to self-isolate.
