Both companies will contribute to the promotion of global health by bringing together their knowledge, expertise and networks to form new projects and conduct experimental projects.

In the society of expanding COVID-19, infectious disease control is one of the major global challenges and new models of collaboration through innovative solutions are required to reduce burden of infectious diseases and promote health equity in the world.
MURC established a Center on Global Health Architecture to tackle issues in global health. One of its initiatives is to combat infectious diseases and they focus on “digital health,” or the use of digital technologies to improve health and wellness systems. AINQA is a company that uses cutting-edge technologies such as data science and AI to develop effective digital solutions for infectious disease with healthcare stakeholders around the world.
This MoU aims to joint their efforts to form projects on the implementation of digital platforms in low-and middle-income countries such as Asia and Africa, with a focus on “Prevention,” “Early detection,” and “Response,” as well as “Prediction” in the fight against infectious diseases.
