The 9th Annual ICT4D Conference will be held in Hyderabad, India, on May 15–18, 2017. This year’s theme is From Innovation to Impact: Harnessing Data for the Sustainable Development Goals.

JSI has been exploring innovative ways to harness technology to increase the use of data for decision-making, including implementing effective mobile data collection and information systems and creating mobile tools to aid frontline health workers.

Our experts’ presentations will focus on the development of an interoperable, open-sourced software for electronic logistics management information systems, the implementation of the software in Zambia, a mobile case management tool for midwives in Myanmar, and a mobile supportive supervision tool for frontline health workers in India.
