Dermatological pathologies are part of the 5 main ground consultations in Madagascar, including Sexual Transmitted Infections. The prevalence of common dermatosis represented by infectious diseases (fungus, bacterial) and allergic dermatosis (eczema, insect bites) is constantly increasing. Like other African countries, Madagascar has only 13 dermatologists, one dermatologist for 2 million inhabitants, and most of them are working in the capital. To increase the inclusion cases, teledermatology is a great opportunity to collect data from all over the country. Since June 2020, we joined the PASSION project implemented by University of Basel Switzerland with other countries such as Australia, China, and Guinea. The objective of our study is to compare phototypes cases in these countries using AI. « My.crf.one » et « Intellistream » are two applications used in the PASSION project.

“My.crf.one” is a data collection app. This algorithm allows to classify 5 main pathologies according to the phototypes characterizing Malagasy people, varying from III to VI. These are dermatophytosis, scabies, Impetigo, atopic dermatitis, and insect bites. A total of 6 data collection sites are available in Madagascar : 3 sites in Antananarivo, 1 site in Antsirabe, 1 site in Tamatave and 1 site in Majunga. In 2 year, almost 500 cases were collected.

The “Intellistream” application is both a teleconsultation and tele-expertise application. Intellistream is a teledermatology application for an online consultation, as well bringing general practitioners and patients closer to dermatologists.

All in all these platforms will be a tool to assist in the accurate diagnosis and first aid of frequent but neglected dermatological pathologies causing a major public health problem.
