Abstract

Safe and cost-effective wearable sensors and healthcare informatics solutions hold great promises and opportunities in tackling non-communicable diseases (NCDs) burden. This paper highlights the future opportunities of wearable sensors and healthcare informatics consolidation platforms implementation, uptake capabilities and needs in non-communicable diseases (NCDs) prevention and management in Africa. Establishing digital wearable technology policy and frameworks requires robust political commitment and financial investment in research and development towards real time, safe and effective prevention and management programs and tools. Leveraging on it added-value in strengthening health systems inefficiencies and low-cost care delivery is imperative in promoting predictive and preventive lifestyle mitigation an adaptation solutions to millions at risk or suffering from chronic illnesses. Also, in promoting participatory patient- professionals-health providers’ relationship and cooperation, monitoring and tracking of medication adherence to pathophysiological disease progression. Furthermore, digital wearable sensors offer another opportunity in generating data, information and knowledge in promoting evidence- based and practical lifestyle adaptations and other health / fitness mitigation programs in revamping the rising NCDs challenges in most vulnerable populations in Afri
