High-tech goals for Africa include wireless communication

Rwanda aims to become Africa's high-tech hub - Yahoo! News

This is one of many stories reporting the ambitious plans of several African nations, in this case Rwanda, that include wireless communications to an extent that could surpass developed nations.

The use of smartphones for clinical support in Africa is mentioned in this article in Biotech 360 in their article Dialing for Health in Africa.

Roughly nine million people live in Rwanda, and nearly 200,000 of them are infected with HIV. Healthcare facilities often lack the appropriate supplies, reliable Internet connections, and have a limited ability to track patients or the spread of HIV across the country. With Phones-for-Health, though, cell phones could soon make it possible to track epidemics in this and other developing countries.
