Committed to Nigeria

Malaria is the leading cause of death in Nigeria. An estimated 54 million cases of malaria per year result in 82,000 yearly deaths.

OUR GOAL: a world free of malaria.

Xinova is brainstorming and testing truly innovative solutions to improve the timeliness, quality and visibility of data for the malaria supply chain in Northern Nigeria.

The opportunity

Xinova, with support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, has gathered five innovators to collaborate and identify new approaches to improve the ability to track malarial supplies, particularly Rapid Diagnostic Tests (RDT) and antimalarial medicines, throughout this low resource setting.

The goal of these sessions will be to identify a solution that can: 

  1. Provide accurate and complete supply chain data across all levels of the supply chain, including the last mile, in as close to real time as possible
  2. Lower the amount of work required by clinic workers
  3. Be cost effective and sustainable once implemented at scale
  4. Can be tested at low cost in a follow-on project

Meet our Innovators!

This team of innovators answered the call and applied to lend their diverse expertise toward an innovative solution. They will be converging in Seattle, WA to participate in this opportunity, taking place on June 25-26, 2019.
