Ersilia Open Source Initiative


Ersilia Open Source Initiative aims to create a world with more equitable access to healthcare by equipping universities and clinics in low-income countries with artificial intelligence (AI) tools for infectious and neglected disease research. Focusing on Southern Africa, the organisation’s accessible AI and capacity building initiatives strengthen local universities and institutions’ ability to tackle the health needs of their own people. The charity is using The Fore’s grant to fund a salaried CEO in order to transform the organisation from a ‘start-up’ to a sustainable charity able to deliver at scale and reach its potential.
