Enhanced healthcare systems
In partnership with British Telecom (BT), SOS Children's Villages’ medical staff in Africa has developed a Health Management System that will be implemented in seven different SOS Children’s Villages Medical Centres in Africa. A common Health Management System speeds up the patients’ journey and administrative tasks, from the moment they make an appointment to when they leave the healthcare facility.
In October 2016, British Telecom won the Broadband Changing Lives Award for Connecting Africa, considered a prestigious recognition of excellence in the Broadband Market Place.
As connectivity has improved in the regions where Connecting Africa has been implemented, a number of locations have sustained, independent access to the internet, meaning the number of locations can be reduced in 2018. ©
BT also supports learning activities for children through an Open Space Literacy in Kenya.
