Blockchain projects collaborate for health programmes supporting the
UN Sustainable Development Goals

VALLETTA, Malta–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Kamari,
a project building an ecosystem of mobile gaming and lotteries with
existing licenses in over seven African countries, has partnered with Kinect,
a blockchain-based health technology platform focused on advancing the
United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), to fund and promote
new HIV testing programmes in countries across the African continent.

Kinect and Kamari, both focused on development across Africa, have
formed an official partnership with the intention of promoting health
initiatives and increase the detection of infectious diseases, aimed to
support the United Nations SDG #3: Good
Health and Well Being
. The two projects have proposed the
establishment of a special, multi-country lottery to encourage untested
males between the ages of 18 to 34 years to undergo an HIV test at
participating clinics with the goal of promoting education and treatment
for infected individuals.

“HIV infection is a serious issue in many African countries and the
ongoing spread of the disease by untested individuals, has been
incredibly difficult to address,” said Toby Carroll, Kinect Chairman.
“We believe that this partnership with Kamari and the proposed lottery
to incentivise those untested individuals to take their first test, will
lead to increased education, treatment and hopefully reduce the spread
of the disease.”

Kinect is a health focused technology company, which works in close
alignment with Ministries of Health and large global charities across
Africa, to improve the wellbeing of the African people. Kinect has also
been operating in Mumbai, India for the last four months with its
blockchain enabled electronic health record and patient incentivisation
system working seamlessly to improve patient treatment programmes.

Kamari is a new multi-country initiative with existing gaming, online
casino, and lottery licenses across multiple African countries with the
goal of building a united mobile gaming and lottery ecosystem for over
one billion people. By integrating existing infrastructure and licensing
with a standardised currency for gaming and payments, Kamari will
instantly offer a better experience to hundreds of millions of people
across Africa.

“Africa will be a multi-currency universe creating benefit and liquidity
to all from the unbanked to the commercially astute,” said Dr.
Christopher Cleverly, CEO of Kamari. “Kinect has a model that will
thrive on an interoperable platform of shared values created through
collaboration. This will be a game changer for medical data and
application on the continent.”

Kinect recently formed a partnership with ZEU Crypto networks and its
Canadian Stock Exchange listed company, St Georges Eco-Mining to develop
its private permissioned blockchain that can integrate with major
platforms including Cardano and EOS. ZEU Crypto Networks are investing
US$2.45m into Kinect to enable development and expansion in existing
operations.

Since 2016, Kinect has raised US$5.75m to bring the platform and
business development to its current state and ensure successful
expansion across Africa and other emerging economies with the greatest
need.

Kinect and Kamari have entered into a US$2.5m coin swap to fund the
initiative.
