How Vodafone is supporting health delivery in Africa

The technological barrier in delivering health care services in remote and regional developing communities is a challenge for many NGOs — especially if it requires fast and reliable communication networks to send and receive health data to assist planning and response. But slowly, these technological hurdles are being reduced.

By working with startups and NGOs operating in developing countries, communication giants have access to an important intelligence network helping them to understand development needs and enable better coverage for emerging markets. And the development community, in turn, can scale solutions for wider and faster impact.

In Africa, a new partnership between the Vodafone Foundation and SystemOne demonstrates how this exchange of knowledge and services can overcome barriers of reliability to deliver rapid health diagnosis support throughout the continent.
