Nexleaf Analytics’ mission is to “build, scale, and support wireless sensor devices and data analytics tools that improve global public health and the environment.”
Lack of data is a hindrance to effective health and climate change solutions. Nexleaf creates and deploys customized technologies to address specific local needs in Africa and South Asia:
- ColdTrace is a wireless remote temperature monitoring solution designed for vaccine refrigerators in rural clinics and health facilities. Nexleaf provides training and country-specific Standard Operating Procedures for this innovation. Since we last featured Nexleaf in Q1 2018, they launched a pilot in Mozambique to protect vaccines during transport, and the Tanzania Ministry of Health is enveloping Nexleaf data and analytics tools into their national health systems.
- StoveTrace devices remotely monitor cookstoves in rural communities to help reduce air pollution inside homes. Monitoring cookstove effectiveness allows adjustments for improvement in each location. To date 1,026 women in 17 villages in Nigeria and India have
cooked for over 474,221 hours on cleaner stoves. Since we last featured Nexleaf one of their village partners in India has reached two years of sustained adoption of clean cooking!
- Nexleaf recently announced a project in partnership with the Center for Public Health and Development, a local health organization in Nairobi, Kenya, to monitor the power availability in health facilities within COVID-19 hotspots. Their goal is to understand where and why power outages occur and how to improve the power infrastructure across facilities.
Nexleaf’s strong commitment to data-driven methods is producing impressive results and we are proud to contribute to their ongoing impact.
