We can't deny it. Technology is making the world smaller. In the Philippines, distance barrier have made healthcare beyond the reach of most Filipinos. But today, technology helps make health services accesible wherever and whoever you are.
The UP Manila-National Telehealth Center values engaging people to identify problems in the health care system and introduce Information and Communications Technology (ICT) like mobile phones, computers, and the internet, as one of its solutions.
We develop telehealth applications from people's very own problem-solving contributions and translate research into practice by deploying ICT solutions to communities where needed most. Along with, we mainstream this cause by advocating concrete policies to strengthen ICT4Health.
