Status NFR reporting

Payment for 2017 was distributed in late April, together with a prepayment for those who asked for it. We expect another contribution from NFR right after the summer, thus will be able to cover pre-payment requests for the second half of 2018.

Summary from Global Health conference presentation in April

Josef chaired the session and introduced the topic of "Digital Health as enabler for Digital Literacy and Digital Inclusion". Sara Rivenes from UiO, Erwan and Christine from DigI presented their recent work. A panel discussion followed.

Roll-out TZ

The current situation is as follows:

  • Migoli and Izazi: Vodacom as coverage, Josef is in a dialogue with Christine from Vodacom on the SIM Cards
  • Selela does currently not have 3G coverage. We are in a dialogue with operators to see if one can deploy a 3G spot

Operators are reluctant to provide a specific IPlink to the villages. Thus, the strategy is to ask the operators to "provide 3G", evtl upgrade the network. As this will take time, we follow plan B for Selela:

  • Elibariki will send a list of villages to Josef/Felix, such that we can ask operators if they have 3G coverage out there. If yes, then we redo te effort from Migoli/Izazi

NCA and PATH are interested in collaboration on the phase B villages. Josef will send the presentation, and ask for a prioritised list of villages

Interim report

Danica is finalizing the report. Thanks for all contributions!
