A young Cameroonian engineer, Arthur Zang, has built the first fully touch screen medical tablet that could soon save many African lives. However, he needs funding to mass-produce the device. Sadly, the country has only 30 heart surgeons for more than 20 million people. Nevertheless, the dream of Arthur Zang, a 24-year-old Cameroonian engineer, is to facilitate the treatment of patients with heart disease across Cameroon.
