Improving the health of individuals and communities, and strengthening health systems, disease detection and prevention are crucial to development and poverty reduction.
ICT has the potential to impact upon almost every aspect of the health sector. In public health, information management and communication processes are pivotal, and are facilitated or limited by the available information and communication technology. In addition, beyond the formal health sector, the ability of impoverished communities to access services and engage with and demand a health sector that responds to their priorities and needs, is importantly influenced by wider information and communication processes, mediated by ICT.
infoDev released a working paper on ICT and Health "Improving Health, Connecting People: the Role of ICTs in the Health Sector of Developing Countries - A Framework Paper".
