About This Session

At 7.2 billion, there are more mobile connections than people on the planet and 30 percent of the world’s population has access to and uses the Internet. Asia accounts for half of all mobile phone subscriptions and use of digital technology in Africa is growing rapidly, with roughly 170 million Internet users. An estimated one billion users in Africa will access the Internet through low-cost mobile phones by 2050. These consumer trends, coupled with declining hardware and communications costs globally, offer a huge opportunity to use digital as a tool to address long-standing issues in health services delivery for women and children.
