DREAM Workshop on Information Technologies
A weeklong workshop took place in the Maputo DREAM center of the Community of Sant’Egidio with the participation of computer engineers working with the Dream Program in Tanzania, Malawi and various areas of Mozambique.
The workshop provided updates and thorough analyses of topics covering information and communication technologies, data protection and security and the use and improvement of software developed by the DREAM Program. The program in fact has been investing in ICT expertise since its beginnings to assist more than 350,000 patients already reached through the program located in the 11 Sub-Saharan countries.
The workshop aimed at improving technological support and problem solving without forgetting that people, not technologies, are the Program’s focus: not only how to build and maintain digital networks, but also an in-depth look at how to improve human networks and fully benefit from joint collaboration and efforts, taking advantage of the technological tools used in treating patients.
