I recently (April 29, 2007) gave a talk to the Ghana Physicians and Surgeons Foundation (a group of Ghanaian doctors practicing in the US) at their annual African Healthcare Summit.
My slides are downloadable here (ppt, 10.5 MB). I gave an introduction to TIER, talking about our work using long distance WiFi (WiLDnet) for the Aravind Eye Hospitals in India, then gave an overview of our project in Ghana. Just for a bit of context, I also presented a brief introduction to network infrastructure options in Ghana.
It was a great opportunity to meet many wonderful people, including my host Grace and the many doctors actively returning to Ghana on a regular basis to provide training and do rural outreaches. I’m really looking forward to working with all of them!
