The annual ICT4D Conferences have proven to be an invaluable opportunity for NGOs, private sector organizations, universities, governmental agencies and foundations to share their experience in using ICT to increase the impact of development programs and to learn from each other. In 2016, 750 individuals from 76 countries and 320 private sector and public sector and civil society explored the ways to harness the full power of digital solutions to achieve the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. Our thanks to Accenture, Catholic Relief Services, Esri, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, iMerit Technology Services, Inmarsat, IS Solutions, Making All Voices Count, Mercy Corps, Microsoft, NetHope, Oxfam, Pandexio, Qualcom Wireless Reach, RTI International, SimbaNet and World Vision for making that possible.
This presentation focuses on the importance, benefits, and challenges of the usage of hybrid communities (face-to-face and virtual) for promoting health, particularly Social and Behavior Change Communication (SBCC). One hybrid community, Springboard for Health Communication, will be highlighted during the presentation; we will explore the facets of this sizeable community of health communication practitioners who have come together to talk about best practices and lessons learned in SBCC.
Here's the link to the Springboard>>
