Abstract It is obvious that in most developing countries patients lack access to good medical services and facilities; the long queues of patients in the hospitals waiting to be attended to cannot be avoided leading to waste of time and worsening of patient’s ailment. Febrile diseases have been considered as one of the dangerous diseases which kills more people more than the dreaded Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome(AIDS) not because it is not curable but because of the similarities in signs and symptoms that makes it difficult for health workers and the general public to easily identify their variations and administer proper medication. This paper Mobile Expert system on Fevers, is a mobile expert appdeveloped for use in the diagnosis of many febrile diseases which includesmalaria, scarlet, typhoid, chikungunya, rheumatic, dengue, lassa, meningitis, filariasis and influenza fevers. The software was implemented using Android SDK programming language and SQLite as the database containing experts’ knowledge. It is accessible via mobile devices running on Android operating system platform, and as a data-driven app, the data supplied as symptoms by the user leads to conclusion on any of the diseases within its domain. It also provided general information to people about the ten types of fevers covered in this work. The app does not need any special requirement for its operation.
