$100M Pan-African Telemedicine & Tele-education Network with India
I will try to dig up more information on this later, but wanted to get this story out there about the approval of $100M to link up Indian and African organizations fro a pan-African e-network. What will be linked up:
- 12 Universities (7 Indian, 5 African)
- 17 super specialty hospitals (12 Indian, 5 African)
- 53 Telemedicine centers
- 53 Tele-education centers
“The project will use Indian expertise in IT, education and healthcare, to deliver affordable distance education and telemedical services in 53 countries across the continent.” Full story (credit to a friend at TIER for this info) and more information from Ghana Ministry of Communications.
