The outlook is getting brighter for ICT in Africa. The recent announcement of a European Community funded project to improve health informatics and ICT in a group of African countries sounds as if it might have legs.
We’ve just put together a Pan-African proposal for Bioinformatics networking to support African Health Genomics. This is for submission to the National Institutes of Health Genome Research Institute. If its successful it will be Africa’s first dedicated health bioinformatics network – dedicated to building and sustaining local capacity.
I can’t wait.
