General information


The Health Commission’s work is guided by the IFIP WITFOR’2005 Gaborone Declaration’s section on ICT and health:

Using ICT to improve the efficiency and equity of health service provision

We propose to strengthen health information systems within the developing world by building collaborative networks to share experiences, practices, knowledge and products amongst the developing countries themselves as well as the developed countries.

We further propose to promote open standards and to undertake research on information systems and application of Open and or Free Software and proprietary software in the health sector.

Furthermore we propose to improve communication among health workers by providing health workers with e-mail and Internet connectivity.
