    Egypt Receives WSIS 2016 Champion Certificate in Telemedicine Solutions Program

    Geneva, 10 May 2016
    The Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) has received the Champion Certificate during the ceremony of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) 2016 prizes, held in Geneva, for the “Telemedicine Solutions”, a project that its significance lies in contributing to the social and economic development by means of using ICT tools.

    The project is implemented by the United Nations Development Program UNDP and Egypt Information and Communication Technology Trust Fund (ICT-TF), jointly established by MCIT and UNDP.

    The project is based on the cloud computing system for remote medical diagnosis that assists in the transfer of medical data necessary for diagnosis, treatment and health awareness.

    It comprises medical images, video/voice direct binary files and patient medical records. The system relies on free open source software, and its management depends on cooperating with non-governmental and non-profit medical organizations and medical educational entities.

    The project was implemented within the “Integrated ICT for Development in Siwa” project, which will be replicated in Aswan, Nasr Nuba Center, and other new border and remote areas that are in urgent need of medical services provided by the project.

    WSIS Awards include 18 categories, directly linked to the WSIS Action Lines. Egypt presented its project within the e-health applications category and received a Champion Certificate for 2016. ICT- TF project was one of 27 other projects presented this year by African countries.
