ICTs and more particularly mobile technology is emerging as the single most powerful way to extend social services and economic opportunities to millions of people in developing countries, and more particularly in Sub-Saharan Africa.
The wide ownership of mobile phones in Sub Saharan Africa (over 400 million people) is an opportunity for the use of this platform for more efficient and effective public administration (e-Governance) as well as delivery of key public services namely health and education.
Under this theme, we investigate how to use ICTs and mobile technology in particular to improve public administration (e-Governance) as well as delivery of key public services namely;
- Health (e-Health) services in the context of Uganda & Developing countries
- Education (e-Learning) services in the context of Uganda and developing countries in general.
- Additionally, this theme is used as an application area for research in the first four themes.
