Globalization and Health

Most AI-based health applications are developed and implemented in high-income countries, their use in Low- and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs) contexts is recent and there is a lack of robust local evaluations to guide decision-making in low-resource settings. After discussing the potential benefits as well as the risks and challenges raised by AI-based health care, this paper proposes five building blocks to guide the development and implementation of more responsible, sustainable, and inclusive AI health care technologies in LMICs.
