West Africa Is a Lab for Emergency Medicine
An explosion in software-led technology businesses across the region has powered homegrown, cutting-edge emergency health care that saves lives, OZY reports.

Where will these innovations spread next? They could be exported to other developing, densely populated nations, including rural parts of India and China.
