Healthcare infrastructure is growing in Africa, but the distances involved in some countries make access difficult. The Bonsaaso Villages Telemedicine project provides rural villages in Ghana with access to information and training to cope with common health problems, childbirth and illness, by connecting them to healthcare services through mobile phone masts.
