Beyond2020 highlights AI-powered mammography services in Costa Rica

Beyond2020, an initiative launched by the Zayed Sustainability Prize, is highlighting the deployment of AI-powered mammography services across Costa Rica to support women living in underprivileged communities.

The prize is the United Arab Emirates' award for sustainability and humanitarianism. The initiative aims to improve access to high-quality healthcare for women in the region. A total of 8,000 tests will be conducted annually using the AI-based mammography services, which have been deployed in Juan Pablo II Medical Centre in Cartago, with plans to deploy the services in additional health facilities in the future.

A mobile unit has also been deployed, aiming to reach underserved areas across Costa Rica where access to healthcare may be limited. The mobile unit is owned and operated by CENRAD, which has reached 840 women across 13 locations since January.

The Beyond2020 deployment in Costa Rica was carried out by the 2022 Zayed Sustainability Prize winner Mamotest, an Argentina-based health-tech enterprise.
