Health eVillages

What is it?
This concept is based on the poor health care in deprived arreas where good medical health care and education aren’t readily available. They want you to donate your used mobile device so they can use them to reach these deprived arreas to give them also good health care. The organisation gives I-pads preloaded with skyscape medical reference technology to underserved arreas.

Their mission:
‘Enabling safe and efficient medical care in the most challenging clinical environments, anywhere in the world, by providing the latest in mobile healthcare technology.’

Why I think it is cool
This is not really a tool or an app or something tangible but it is an awesome and creative concept to improve healthcare. They make use of the technologie that is availible. I think this concept becomes more and more usefull in the future because we can make easier contact with these deprived arreas to give them the medical attention they need. Besides, it is also a form of recycling!
