AI-SAROSH is hosting Workshop on “Artificial Intelligence for Sexual and Reproductive Health for South Asia”

The 2023 Grant Cycle Co-Design Workshop on “Artificial Intelligence for Sexual and Reproductive Health for South Asia” took place from September 13–17, 2023, in Colombo, Sri Lanka. AI-SAROSH is an AI-powered platform that aims to transform access to SRMH resources and services in South Asia.

Participants in the workshop came from Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, and Pakistan, and they were given money from the platform to carry out innovative projects, research, and AI developments. The host panel has organized a thorough schedule of activities for the four days of workshop sessions, including a number of interactive sessions to inspire the participants to take additional inventive steps in their individual tasks.

PHC Global in Pakistan and GTA in Nepal are implementing partners of AI-SAROSH which is funded by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC). Dr. Shamim Hayder Talukder, Chief Executive Officer, Eminence, which is an awarded organization said, “AI holds the potential to revolutionize maternal health, ensuring every mother receives the care she deserves. From early risk detection to personalized support, artificial intelligence is a powerful ally in safeguarding maternal well-being”.

Eminence along with Obstetrical and Gynecological Society of Bangladesh, National Institute of Mental Health, and Department of Robotics and Mechatronics Engineering under University of Dhaka; will be working on the model development of an AI tool to ensure timely and accurate detection of perinatal depression among pregnant and postpartum women in Bangladesh.

The creation of a user-friendly interface would enable healthcare providers to easily utilize the AI model for screening and diagnosis, leading to early intervention, improved maternal mental health outcomes, reduced stigma, and enhanced overall well-being for women during the perinatal period.
