Telemedicine links Africans to Indian expertise
Reuters, April 3, 2008
A $2.13 million telemedicine project links hospitals in Ethiopia with the Hyderabad-based Care Group of Hospitals, India's leading cardiac institute. The project is part of the joint initiative between the African Union and India which was launched in Ethiopia last year to improve Internet links and communication. There is just one doctor for every 37,000 people in Ethiopia, and the project aims to alleviate some of the country's healthcare burdens.
