Health Games provides an eLearning platform that aims at raising awareness and knowledge on non-communicable diseases (NCDs). Following the “Gamification” approach it wraps up life-saving knowledge into a fun and competitive, therefore engaging format. As an online game it allows to reach a high proportion of the population instantly and is also able to collect information on the status of peoples’ awareness by region, age etc., which is of great value not only for governments.
The venture builds upon the business model that Health Games licenses its platform to actors interested in raising NCD awareness like Governments and Health Care actors.
Health Games successfully conducted several knowledge tournaments on NCDs, reproductive health and Covid-19. The latest ‘Contest Against Corona’ in November 2020 was attended by 5000 participants from 5 African countries. The venture is now planning to establish a regular mobile "Pan African Health Knowledge Contest" as an international analytics tool for an African Digital Health Education Observatory. Health Games is in the process of scaling, creating further social games as a prevention tool for clients as JSI, Merck and BASF.
