Nafundi discusses technology and global health on Doctors Without Borders panel

Yaw, Nafundi's CEO, will be on a Doctors Without Borders panel moderated by KUOW's Ross Reynolds this Thursday, November 29, 2012 at 7:00 PM in Seattle. The "Closing the Digital Divide in Global Health" panel is free, open to the public, and fully accessible. The abstract is listed below.

Applying the latest digital tools to humanitarian responses and global health projects has always been difficult due to persistent challenges like remote locations, unreliable electricity, and underdeveloped communications infrastructure. Increasingly, however, there have been applications, platforms, and database sharing innovations that have been successfully deployed in places like Haiti, Peru, Rwanda, and other contexts.

Join us as four information technology experts discuss what it takes to adopt and adapt current technologies for use in field programs around the world, using up-to-date technologies to help address the needs of the world's most vulnerable populations.

Hope to see you there!
