Social entrepreneurship and Innovation in an African rural setting
ICT4MPOWER is an integrated healthcare information management system providing the backbone for the delivery of public healthcare at the point of need. The development project, which is a collboraiton between stakeholders in Uganda and Sweden, targets crititcal challenges in information management, continuity of care, work processes, outpatient management, transparency, as well as priority cases; child and maternal healthcare and HIV/AIDS (cronich disease management). Focus is on improving transparency and management of scarce resouces: technical, human, and drugs supply.
Rustam Nabiev, coordinator, will talk about some of the innovations that were developed considering local circumstances; the system itself, the app developer enabling local management and further development of the system, the community outreach program utilising time freed up from the clinicians higher up in the health care chain to supply professional health care services at the point of need (including cool bag which enables last mile transport of vaccines) and HIV/ AIDS patient management system.
The team members are social entrepreneurs –they have identified a pressing social problem and solved it on a large scale - bearing in mind that it should be sustainable in an African setting. What challenges did they encounter? How do you stick to the plan – limit the scope but include necessary new components? Join us next Wednesday to get answer to some of these questions.
