Connect Africa, Volume 2

Investing in Africa's Progress

This is the second volume in the “Connect Africa” series that ITU has produced since the Summit held in Kigali, Rwanda in October 2007, under the patronage of His Excellency President Paul Kagame of Rwanda. The summit gave an important boost to connect the continent, and a commitment was made to link all African capitals and major cities with broadband infrastructure and improve links with the rest of the world by 2012. For Africa which still has a vast, untapped potential for growth in information and communication technologies (ICT), is open for business. And it is new investment in ICT infrastructure that will lead to new jobs and overall economic growth. This publication highlights the public-private partnership using third-generation (3G) wireless technology to improve health.
