ITU and the World Health Organization (WHO) have signed a cooperation agreement to launch a joint partnership to scale up the use of digital technologies to strengthen the delivery of public health care services in Africa. The "Digital Health for Africa" partnership will assist countries in Africa to promote the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) in the health sector. It will also equip health care workers with digital skills and build the required digital infrastructure, including integrated systems and platforms for providing and scaling up digital health services in a consistent and efficient manner. "This agreement with WHO signifies ITU's continued commitment to expand its collaboration to bring the benefits of the digital economy to all, especially those in rural and remote areas," says ITU Secretary-General Houlin Zhao.
