"Uganda: Wireless Network to Bring Health Info to Isolated Areas"

"The launch of a nationwide, wireless network to improve Uganda's ability to treat patients and combat the spread of disease was announced today. The network is built around the country's well-established cell phone network, inexpensive handheld computers, and innovative wireless servers called 'Jacks.' The technology allows health care workers to access and share critical information in remote facilities without fixed telephone lines or regular access to electricity. The announcement was made by Canadas International Development Research Centre (IDRC), WideRay, a wireless technology company based in San Francisco, and SATELLIFE, a non-profit organization focused on improving health in developing countries."
