ICTs and Sustainability…can it work?

July 1, 2010 at 4:23 am (Uncategorized)

Check out this video I found on YouTube.  The main point of the video clip is that ICTs or Information Communication Technologies can be used to improve public health, the economy (poverty reduction), and be used as a valuable educational tool.  In particular note 4:30, which talks about Bangladesh and The Grameen Bank micro-loan system.  It’s super brief so pay close attention.  For my next post I’ll focus on how mobile phones are being used in China to stop the spread of infectious diseases following a natural disaster.
