Africa International University Youth Mentorship November 23- 24, 2018

Africa International University (AIU) hosts its Annual Youth Mentorship November 23-24, 2018, at its Karen Campus on Dagoretti Road.

Ubrica blockchain team will be there. Visit Ubrica booth. Learn more about Ubrica Project, computer science and blockchain technology for decentralizing global health.

You will learn how to work with digital assets such as Ubricoin. You will gain knowledge about working with digital wallets, how to create cryptocurrency wallets, how to get Ubricoin and other cryptos, and how to trade cryptos in the open market.

 

Why Blockchain

Blockchain facilitate the inclusion of fringe stakeholders to position of salience at the core of decision making.

We will use blockchain to facilitate meaningful interactions among peers working together in Ubrica ecosystem.

Blockchain aims at changing the external environment by including the distant voices from the fringe stakeholders who are most of times neglected in our societies. This will help us understand the concerns of distant and diverse stakeholders. Including the fringe stakeholders allows Ubrica to understand the complex and evolving issues that may potentially affect the basis of its future and addressing them.

Why should one get ubricoin

To start, Ubricoin will facilitate point of sale payment system for Ubrica’s e-commerce platform (sokojanja.com). Ubricoin will reduce friction of currency in the trade and facilitate real time transfer of cash. Ubricoin will also act as the escrow to protect its members from fraud by eliminating middlemen who usually do not provide value for money.

Ubricoin will help you access medical services, you can buy items using ubricoin from our retail store called SokoJanja and once you have ubricoin in your wallet you can trade, where you can buy and sell ubricoin.

The basic process used in a UBRICOIN on Artificial Intelligence transaction and data entry is given below

• Data is generated where even the patient’s wearable device could generate data, a doctor could write a note to the blockchain, or a pharmacist could dispense medicine.
• The data is encrypted and given an identity that is stored on the patient’s blockchain; this data is sent to cloud storage.
• When Data is requested, the ID on the blockchain is used to retrieve the encrypted data.
• Finally the data is decrypted, then displayed on the relevant device or application.

COMPONENTS OF THE UBRICA RETAIL CLINICAL CENTRE (URCC)

By Jane M. Jeremiah

The basic components of a URCC include a one-health clinic/health facility, a retail store surrounded by a series of produce/product processing workshops.

The workshops in the URCC model will process fresh produce (food co-op), milk (dairy co-op), edible animal products (meat co-op), garments (leather co-op), furniture (wood co-op), and metal fabrication (metal co-op). It will also feature a veterinary clinic, a water plant, a healing garden, and a flower garden.

Blockchain for Financing Universal Health Coverage

Direct Transactions:

Blockchain based Cryptocurrencies use;

  • Secure
  • Trusted
  • Direct financing
  • Bypassing slow and costly traditional third party financial intermediaries.
Figure 1: Showing Blockchain for Universal Health Coverage Financing

Suitable tool for Universal Health Coverage.

A strong Public Financial Management (PFM) system can ensure higher and more predictable budget allocations, reduced fragmentation in revenue streams and funding flows, timely budget execution, and better financial accountability and transparency. But the health sector faces some specific challenges that require more flexibility than PFM systems sometimes offer, including the ability to direct funds to where interventions and services are needed and ensure equity while creating incentives for efficiency and quality. PFM systems do not always align with these health financing objectives. Even when PFM reforms support health financing objectives, misalignment’s can still occur due to operational issues or challenges in implementing PFM improvement thus making it not the sustainable tool for financing universal health coverage.

Blockchain, the technology underlying Bitcoin, Ethereum and UBRICOIN and countless other cryptocurrencies, has built a top  network that makes trusted, secure, immutable and interoperable records of every transaction. Moreover, it makes this record available in every corner of the globe. This technology is already being adopted by a variety of industries, including banking, minerals and mining, and food procurement. While others have written about the power of blockchain to revolutionise health information technology and payment models, in this paper, we outline the capacity for blockchain technology to revolutionise global health by enabling universal access to financing, new multilateral financing mechanisms and smart contracts, data markets, and new standards for payments and reimbursement, thus empowering countries, institutions and consumers.
