This description of Anne Roos-Weil's work was prepared when Anne Roos-Weil was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2012.
Anne Roos-Weil has piloted a cost-effective medical system to drastically reduce the number of African children and mothers who die from benign diseases. Combining simple skills and cell phones, she systematically collects basic health data and transfers it electronically to local medical staff to inform proper treatment or medical action. Endorsed by the Malian Health Ministry and private companies, Anne’s idea systematizes the early detection of 70 percent of mortality cases and creates a system-flip from sickness to wellness.
