About the initiative

My CDPZW Solution addresses the lack of access to education for health workers especially those working in remote locations as well as the lack of clinical decision support tools for health workers.

The CPD platform ehances the effieciency of other existing solutions by increasing access as it is available in user friendly and mobile form.

The solution is a web and mobile application (android and IOS) for the provision of clinical tools :

  • Clinical decision support systems,
  • Continuous professional developement
  • Management of CPD points
