Establishing an Advanced Technology Platform for Infectious Disease in Saudi Arabia

Challenge

The King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology (KACST) sought to establish a national platform to fortify Saudi Arabia’s infectious disease control efforts.

Shift Health’s Role

Shift Health conducted a scan of the Saudi environment and engaged with key stakeholders to understand existing and planned initiatives in infectious disease prediction, prevention and control, and conducted an assessment of six national public health systems to identify best practices. Based on this research, we developed a strategic model for KACST’s Advanced Technology Platform that articulated its unique value proposition and defined its role in Saudi Arabia’s infectious disease arena.

Impact

The strategic model will enable KACST to build national consensus around the platform and engage strategic partners to support implementation.
