Deliverables in T3.2 Phase B specification

Add Deliverable


The overall objective of the activities in Tanzania are to extend the digital health information to a total of 10 villages in TZ. The Main findings from Phase A were establishing Information hot-spots in each village, and thus

  • Building the ecosystem for societal and digital inclusion. Our contribution to this general goal is the focus on information, and especially the free access to information for all.
  • The following components are essential parts of a holistic approach: Solar and other renewable energy, light, the mobile ecosystem for digital access, and free access for information for those not part of the digital society.

Through this holistic approach in building the ecosystem for societal and digital inclusion we empower people for digital health, education, mobile money/micro-credits

Having established the health messages, as well as a village server hosting videos related to health and providing free access to information, Phase B will now extend the reach.
