The report explores the preliminary lessons in the use of mobile phones to promote access to health care information in Uganda. The project under study is the AppLab Uganda Project which operates a Health Tips application, educating users on sexual and reproductive health.
This issue also introduces the new and improved website of PC Tech, also available at www.pctech.co.ug. We have also commissioned the PC Tech “Educate” initiative, which seeks to avail information to students in an attractive way, such that they learn in an enjoyable, non-class setting. Details of this are available on the website, but we encourage you to nominate names of schools to include in this programme.
Finally, Conversations on Technology, Business and Society (CTBuS), PC Tech’s Academic Journal which explores ways in which organizations and society is affected by technology is available at www.ctbus.biz.
All these are in line with our vision, “To be the leading media organization which promotes openness and collaboration on sustainable innovations in Technology, business, and society in Africa.”
We would like to extend our sincere appreciation to all who have continued to contribute, both in terms of articles, and feedback (opinion).
You can contribute your papers to CTBuS (the academic journal) by sending email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would like to contribute in any way to the (print version) August Issue, kindly note that the deadline for submission of all such material is 15th July, 2010.
