Artificial Intelligent (AI) in Community Radios:
Enhancing Health Communication and Malaria Control in Tanzania.
Global Challenge by Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
With our partner Brenda Hendry we are integrating ChatGPT-4 into community radio to broadcast inclusive health messages across Tanzania to combat malaria.
As a pilot, we have trained ChatGPT-4 with malaria health information and local contexts and behaviors collected from community leaders, healthcare professionals, and malaria control programs to ten journalists from community radio in the lake zone.
ChatGPT-4 will then be able to produce accurate malaria-related information that respects cultural norms, language preferences, and local challenges. These messages will be broadcast by community radio stations that reach over 36 million people, and they will evaluate the impact on increasing knowledge and reducing malaria cases.
