Vol 5 (2001)

The aim of this special issue is to emphasize the significance and role of information and communication technologies (ICTs) in health care in developing countries. Until only recently, in many developing countries, debates were rife about whether “ICTs were good or bad for development?” and whether investments should be made in these technologies at the expense of other development priorities like water, roads and electricity? Such debates seem to be at rest now, and instead the more important challenge and question is “how do we apply ICTs in effective ways such that they contribute meaningfully to socio-economic development processes?” The six articles in this special issue seek to address this extremely challenging question. Articles 3 and 4 of this issue include figures of 306KB and 365KB respectively. These figures are made available here separately, since not all readers may have sufficient capacity to download them.

The special issue was guest edited by Sundeep Sahay of the Department of Informatics, Univesity of Oslo, Norway. The full text of the introduction can be found below (23k).
