ABOUT DELPHIX

DELPHIX is designed in partnership with the Sankore Institute of AfroChampions and the PanaBIOS Consortium, with R&D support from Koldchain Biocordon Group, an African machine learning and digital health specialist group.

It is interoperable with similar systems at the continental level, such as the Africa CDC Trusted Travel initiative and the upcoming ECOWAS BIOMARS system.

As a regional health security and biodefence mechanism, it acts as both a shield against the importation of disease from abroad as well as a highly intelligent membrane across member states’ own domestic mechanisms to prevent disease transmission within the region whilst promoting interstate exchanges that advance health cooperation and collective well-being.

A COMMON VISION & SET OF GOALS

In the short-term, DELPHIX shall be applied primarily to the border-crossing & public health risk containment situation that has become so delicately and intimately intertwined with the region’s need for accelerated recovery from the pandemic.

In the medium-term, it should strengthen the Secretariat’s capacity for regionalising the vaccine access, safety, distribution and monitoring mechanisms needed to innoculate the entire SADC subcontinent against COVID-19 and other diseases of international and regional interest.  In so doing, DELPHIX shall be heavily implicated in the building of resilience against future health catastrophes.

Furthermore, DELPHIX shall be crucial in helping strengthen SADC’s position within the African Union and international systems by projecting confidence and reliability of the region’s disease containment mechanisms in order to prevent potential isolation from emerging international travel arrangements.
