Shamim Nabuuma Kaliisa, is a 24-year-old African lady who launched a mobile application to help cancer patients quickly diagnose and seek help for their conditions.
Blackbusiness.com reports that Shamim's initiative, which now helps thousands of people around the globe with a focus on Africa, was born out of passion and personal experience.
When she was young, the social entrepreneur lost her mother to cervical cancer after which she herself suffered from oncology-related complications.
Instead of making her experiences weigh her down, Shamim rather chose to drive positive change in society by helping save the lives of other people going through similar conditions.
Chil AI Lab, Shamim's company, offers innovative artificial intelligence-guided E-Oncology services to diagnose cervical and breast cancer; both of which can be treated to save lives if detected and treated early.
Due to Shamim's huge impact, her company has been featured on CNBC Africa and was recognised as one of the top 10 artificial intelligence companies founded in Africa by Google for start-ups.
Shamim has also been named one of Forbes Africa's 30 Under 30.
