Mobile phones for development
NAI researcher Perpetual Crentsil attends the international conference on mobile phones for development (M4D2014) that is held at the University of Cheikh Anta Diop in Dakar, Senegal 8-9 April.
– Mobile phones by themselves will not be able to deliver developments in low-income (less developed) regions like Africa, says Perpetual Crentsil.
The paper that Perpetual gives is on mHealth and is titled 'Benefits and Challenges: Mobile Telephony, Mediation, and HIV/AIDS Initiatives in Ghana'.
– My wish is that individuals and stakeholders (including states, private companies and aid agencies) will continue to consider how they can ensure an enabling environment for mobile phones to be used innovatively to improve lives in the political, social, economic, and health arenas, says Perpetual Crentsil.
