Mozambique, has just
. . . 548 doctors, for a population of more than
. . . 22 million.
Ethiopia has fewer than
. . . 1 doctor for every
. . . 36,407 people.
Niger has just
. . . 288 doctors for a population of
. . . 14 million

Instead of relying on traditional infrastructure, and a conventional healthcare system,
. . . populations in Africa need:
. . . . . . cheap,
. . . . . . easily accessible, and
. . . . . . genuinely problem-solving technologies.

By 2020, there will be more than
. . . 700m smartphone connections in Africa
. . . more than twice the projected number in North America, and
. . . not far from the total in Europe, according to
. . . GSMA, an association of mobile phone operators.
In Nigeria alone,
. . . 16 smartphones are sold every minute,
. . . while mobile data traffic across Africa is set to increase
. . . 15-fold by 2020.
