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, 715 individuals from 76 countries and 301 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.

HealthKeepers Network
Field Officer
Accra, Ghana
I am a field officer working with HealthKeepers Network community-based family planning program. I have a four (4) year working experience with the program in community entry and advocacy, recruitment and selection of community-based distributors and in their training.
I meet community members with different experiences and backgrounds in life yet they are connected by one goal. The goal of making life better for themselves and their children. They define their goal in different ways; eradicating poverty and hunger, having decent work, access to clean water or having access to good education.
Irrespective of these goals, I believe access to family planning and health-protection products and services for the youth and community members is key in achieving them (Sustainable Development Goals SDGs). The benefits and impact of the same products are very huge and so I believe they can help achieve the other SDGs.
