Presentations and papers

All publications are at DigI:Publications, including presentations by Josef Noll. I would recommend

The BasicInternet "village platform" for distribution of digital health information was developed as part of the "Digital Inclusion" (DigI) project, focusing on Digital Health Promotion in remote areas in Tanzania. Thus, we focussed first on the challenge of access, providing Solutions for access to the mobile network more than 20 km away from the 3G tower, see Selela at the border of the Serengeti.

Seeing the need for such a platform, we work on an open-source implementation of the community/village portal, linked to the vision of a National Knowledge Portal.
