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.

Midwife, Consultant

I am a midwife and technologist. My work has focused on shaping technology solutions that improve care delivery and patient experiences with health care. Right now I'm working with the Helping Babies Breath (HBB) training program, part of the Survive and Thrive partnership. The mHBB data collection system has completed a successful proof-of-concept study in Kenya. With funding from Johnson & Johnson we are now working on a comprehensive landscape analysis for scale-up. Our goal is to evaluate the potential barriers, facilitators, opportunities and supportive partnerships for expansion of a mobile phone-based data collection system for newborn care programs in Sub-Saharan Africa and other LMICs. We are specifically interested in talking to stakeholders working in Ethiopia, Uganda and Tanzania. Please come talk to me!
