Well for once i was delighted to hear news from the old country.
Its a incredible story inmo about how all is not evil in modern tech and how it can and is making a difference in the lives of rural indigenous people.
So this Opthalmologist came up with a smart phone App that enables and empowers rural health care workers to gather information needed to diagnose and chart a path of treatment for people living in very remote areas of South Africa.
The app uses the phones camera and communication means to gather and communicate information between on the spot health workers and specialists back at hospitals.
Here is the app company "Vula"
Can u imagine how it must feel to someone that had resigned themselves to living in blindness and then experiencing this process in their remote village.
Keep in mind in that same village there is likely to be a tradditional healer that is opposed to this and sees it as evil interference etc reminisant of europe of in the days of Michael Angelo.
So good to hear of a positive role tech can play.
Have a good one.
