Description

This project addresses a key development need by extending the reach of basic medical services into remote areas of Nigeria, delivering professional training, data collection and disease monitoring. It uses Inmarsat’s BGAN satellite technology to host communications which will: • Provide video-based health worker training. • Improve health systems management and governance using an information system application. • Improve disease surveillance capabilities. The project will operate at 78 sites in Kano, Lagos and Ondo states as well as the FCT, bringing the national standard of healthcare to the most remote areas. Video-based training will be provided to health workers to an agreed government standard. It will be achieved by using satellite connectivity infrastructure by providing solutions to overcome connectivity challenges to improve healthcare at the last mile. It will directly improve health provision and creates a model which can be extended into other parts of the country.

Objectives

Using satellites to extend the reach of basic medical healthcare in remote areas, improving health service delivery in Nigeria.
