This is again a very good topic of discussion but just like every other good topic in this board, this got buried too
It has been discussed over several occasions how blockchain charity/donation system can be used to solve the medicine crises in Africa. Turns out, money is not really the problem, accessibility is. A whole of communities in Africa live with their cultural beliefs and for them nature should have the cure for everything. Doctors aren't involved unless the plaque has taken several lives. In short, problem also lies in the way of thinking. Blockchain is certain to provide financial help to bring medicinal access to everybody but they're not ready to give up on their cultural ways just yet. 

Blokcchain technology application to medicine and healthcare in Africa is in progress. I came across  a project that used blockchain applications to verify the authenticity of a drugs by scanning a barcode. I think in the future we will see more advance applications which will be beneficial to the poor.
Most of such projects end up paying more money to the military and corrupt politicians before they make their way in African villages.

Africa will need a lot of investment into infrastructure and proper functional governments (that are able to preserve law and order) before seeing blockchain adoption.

I think that poor people in Africa are not ready to accept the blockchain system, they need more real help. living of malawi is very bad, their income in a day is only $ 1. and that's not enough to make ends meet.

in malawi also has a disasters and HIV, and to deal with the problem, I think they need real help. because they do not understand technology.

so, for now, I think that blockchain will not help them.

Yes it is possible. The blockchain technology is the most advanced technology there is today. Africa may not be in the first world but ablot of people from the first world are helping out africa. It will not be long til africa experience blockchain especially in tracking help from different countries.

The technology if allowed and fully embraced would meet every aspects of human life. It can accommodate anything as long as the human mind can think of it. Blockchain Technology is the way to solving human needs.

When we talk about blockchain, only three things are necessary. The network of devices, sufficient internet connectivity and operators. Blockchain could definitely help to optimise the traditional process of data recording and since it has a better set of advantages at a comparatively lower cost, it could be helpful in any part of the world irrespective of the economic condition of the country.

Blockhain has an important roles in prevent drug abuse. The blockchain is a decentralised digital ledger that records and transfers data in a fast, secure, and transparent manner. When applied in the pharmaceutical supply chain, the blockchain tracks the drugs at each stage from the pharmaceutical company to the patient. The IBM research solution involves a permissioned blockchain and a mobile interface. Every party on the network is certified and authorised to initiate an action and complete, track, and verify their transactions. Here is a breakdown of the different functions that the blockchain offers: the blockchain comprises of a trusted network of pharmaceutical companies, delivery carriers, chemists, hospitals, and clinics. For example, the pharmaceutical companies on the blockchain are trustworthy and offer authentic drugs. Therefore, any person ordering drugs on the blockchain-based network is assured of getting industry-approved products.

I find it quite distant, when people have a correct view of the market and the government has the right steps for the crypto market, then we can hope for things like you say.

right, it's possible. A blockchain technology is the first technology to have what it is today. This is not the first African country in the world though its people are from the first one in the africa world. It will not be far from africa and become a blockchain experience especially in accordance with their assistance from different countries.

Of cos it possible.  But I think the government of African countries need to adopt the Blockchain technology for it to be extended to the poor people in Africa. I believe Blockchain will change the world.

Many other countries that blockchain is widely spreading is not through their government, majority of blockchain based project are being executed by individual. The citizens of the African countries need to stand up and take the bull by the horn.

This can only be possible if the government allows it and mind you blockchain generally is a threat to the government. But then we never can tell what the future holds, we might just wake up one morning and hear that even banks are into blockchain, impossible is nothing when it comes to blockchain. Wink

Blockchain mainly used as a ledger for patients medical records and if it can be truly integrated then it makes hospital working faster when finding emergency patient database and helping logistic supplies not only in Africa but also other third world countries. However implementing such technology in these countries isn't as easy as it looks since corruption overflowing and not so open-minded people and government are trying to prevent something new as they risk to expose their past failure  Grin Grin

I dont know why you just mentioning the Africa here but blockchain technologies use in the healthcare can be seen over global level too. As the data generated with patient history is very much helpful for the scientist to study the relevance field more closely.
There are many on going ICO's, and worked out protocols like VoxelX, Trippki etc who are continuously helping the creation of data centre.
I guess such organisations will help reduce the efforts of doctors and also minimise the error! These will be big in the near future as compared to what they are today.

The blockchain technology in Africa can provide many good results because of its high transparency, as there are many cases of scam occur in that continent, especially drug/Medicine scams.
Many organizations carry the charity name to get the drugs they sell on the black market or terrorist organizations.
If it is possible to use the blockchain technology, the harmful use of that industry will be dull and will return positive results.
The same thing is due to governments, the crisis is a crisis of trust and can be solved.

The application of blockchain to medicine is helpful in Africa. Procurement of personnel and other medical equipment is needed by the people of Africa. We will know how the blockchain technology will be developed. I hope this will continue, not just in Africa but other poor countries

Yes I agree that blockchain technology will change the world if only all governments, countries and institutions will be adopting it and not criticize it's ability to help the world a better place. Regarding healthcare issue in Africa I think blockchain can do something good for the people not only for those who are sitting with riches  but also for all levels of social status as it was a decentralized system.
