When it comes to healthcare and technology, one project stands out for its mission to revolutionize the way hospitals connect worldwide. Allow me to introduce you to Mboacare, an innovative app developed by MboaLab, an organization dedicated to catalyzing sustainable local development through open science. As an intern at MboaLab, I’ve had the incredible opportunity to contribute to this groundbreaking initiative, and I’m excited to share its vision with you.

The Mboacare Community:

At the heart of Mboacare lies a vibrant community of healthcare enthusiasts, technologists, and individuals passionate about improving people’s lives. Together, we strive to provide community and lifelong education, act as a platform for exchanging knowledge, and facilitate access to basic healthcare. Our aim is to bridge the gap between local communities and academia, leveraging open digital technologies to propose solutions that meet the needs of diverse populations.

Addressing a Global Challenge:

In today’s fast-paced world, it’s crucial to know which medical facilities are operational, not only in your area but also globally. Mboacare’s primary objective is to create a seamless network, connecting hospitals worldwide. By doing so, we enable individuals to find the nearest medical facility and access vital healthcare services efficiently. Whether you’re seeking general medical care or specialized treatments, Mboacare ensures you’re well-informed and connected to the right resources.

As an intern at MboaLab, I’ve been actively involved in designing and developing the Mboacare app alongside my fellow intern, Anisha Singh. Our first few weeks have been dedicated to thorough research, studying similar apps, and discovering innovative map functionalities to enhance the user experience. With the knowledge gained, we embarked on designing the app using Figma, creating eight screens that include splash screens, account creation and login pages, the home page, hospitals page, hospital details page, and profile page, among may others.

Simplifying Mboacare for You:

We understand the importance of simplicity when introducing a new app to users. Inspired by our progress so far and the thoughtfully designed Figma screens, our goal is to create an intuitive and user-friendly app that seamlessly integrates into your daily life. We want to ensure that even newcomers to the Mboacare community can navigate the app effortlessly, connecting with hospitals globally and accessing vital healthcare information with ease.


Mboacare represents a transformative leap in healthcare technology, bringing hospitals together in a global network accessible to all. Through our dedicated efforts, we aim to empower individuals to make informed healthcare decisions, enhance accessibility, and improve overall well-being. Join me on this exciting journey as we continue to develop and refine Mboacare, making a positive impact on healthcare worldwide.

Remember, Mboacare is not just an app; it’s a catalyst for change, a bridge between communities, and a beacon of hope for a healthier future. Together, let’s embrace the power of technology and healthcare to build a stronger, connected world.
