Telemedicine initiative for sub-Saharan Africa

can region and identify, in consultation with relevant stakeholders, areas where telemedicine development could add value to assess the status of the existing telecommunications infrastructure in the sub-Saharan African region and describe its potential and geographical scope to support health system development, particularly focusing on increasing access to services for poor, rural or remote communities to review the existing telemedicine programs exploited in the area of interest, to consider development cost to date and the potential resources implications of expanding services to draw upon the WHO's existing data on health policy priorities for each country/region, and identify opportunities for telemedicine to support nationally defined objectives and priorities.

The TTF for sub-Saharan Africa activities will be complemented by the following studies:
an analysis of the cost benefits of the implementation of a satellite based network of telemedicine for each country/region, to be funded by the European Development Fund (EDF) a study of a system architecture, and related costs, of a satellite based network of telemedicine at country/region/pan-African level to be funded by ESA. Some preliminary assumptions for this study were presented in the meeting by the industrial consortium and discussed with the African stakeholders

The next two meetings of the TTF for sub-Saharan Africa are scheduled for 22 September and before the end of November, to be held in Europe and in Africa with the operational support of the WHO.

The final report of the TTF for sub-Saharan Africa should be available before the end of this year and it should be presented to the African Ministers in order to support the political decision process.
