I’ll be in Abuja for the next couple days hosted by the Population Council in Nigeria. I’ll give a short talk on Friday at 12pm on my past and future work using ICTs to transform healthcare and promote Social Inclusion.

Population Council is pleased to hold an informal “brown bag” seminar with Mr. Adam Thompson of eHealth Nigeria on the topic of:

The use of ICT for empowerment and social inclusion.

Mr. Thompson is the co-founder of e-HealthNigeria, an NGO based in Kano, Nigeria dedicated to ICT for Development. eHealth Nigeria is currently implementing evaluations of openMRS, low-cost electronic medical record systems, in facilitaties in Kano and Kaduna. Mr. Thompson will share the experiences of using technology to help reform Nigeria’s health services as well as applications relevant to development work within the health sector and farther afield.

Please join us to Welcome Mr. Thompson at Population Council’s office on Friday, July 30th at midday.
