Use Case Description

1SMILE project 
Our use case is the 1SMILE project which stands for One Square Mile Infrastructure Leveraged for Emergencies; it targets ‘Boda Boda’ (a local term for “commercial motorcycles”) with a gamified approach to app design their CLE (continuous learning and education) of 1st responder (frontline Community Health Work) for this Generation-G (gaming generation). We have also borrowed from UCL’s Extreme Citizen Science framework to optimise participation of citizens in intractable, social problems like the rising road traffic accident deaths that are killing and maiming the young people; all of these Boda Boda riders are young men aged 16-30 years.

Our endgame is a community-led three-zeroes strategy: 0 Boda Boda casualties, 0 delays in accessing care, and 0 deaths.

e-Infrastructure Services Exploited

The 1SMILE application re-used the same code of the Kenya Public Health Gateway (PHG). For more information on the PHG see for example this page.
