IeDA – Innovation in children’s healthcare

In Burkina Faso, where one child out of six dies before the age of 5, Terre des hommes has developed IeDA (Integrated e-Diagnostic Approach), which is a telehealth mobile application that helps nurses with the diagnosis of childhood diseases. Discover how this innovation helps save children’s lives in the following video:

540,000 children consulted

“IeDA is a little revolution in the world of telemedicine,” raves Guillaume Foutry, director of the project in Burkina Faso.  In 2011, Terre des hommes set out to improve the medical care of children by computerising health centers in rural areas.  Six years later, the project has paid off: 330 health centres are equipped with tablets, and more than 2000 nurses use the application.  In the space of two years, 540,000 children were consulted with the help of IeDA.
