RE: [learningfromeachother] RE: Funding for travel to Nairobi conference?
By e-medicine I mean the use of solar power to power a camera/video system that broadcasts images and sound to the main hub – Nairobi , here a Dr. can help with the diagnoses. We plan to have courses in Public Health via CAWDNET that works in Nigeria – they have partnered with us. Hence, having local villages with someone educated in Public Health will be of great benefit in dealing with the main Physician at the hub. We will also look for grants that will help getting generators. We are also looking into Wi-Max which has a broader spectrum than Wi-Fi. If there is an expert out there in Wi-Max, please let me know. There is a satellite dish located at the rift valley that I want to see if we can tap into that. All these are possibilities that need to be looked into seriously. I can only attend if I find funding – hence my commitment for this year is tentative.

Your standing and acting on behalf of MS at the Nairobi Conference is well thought of. Which conference will you be attending? I am figuring out what you mean by e-medicine!, great thoughts, I am also lover of technology and how we can use technology in whatever way to let people get information in Agriculuture, Fishing, medicine etc. Going to Villages can add flavour to your e-medicine venture.
I will love to meet you and learn more about your idea. you can brief me and will arrange to see what you will do with Jenny.

Yes, once in Nairobi , I will have the opportunity to collect some data for a
grant that I am preparing. I will be working with colleagues at the
University of Nairobi and at the Hospitals. My wife being a nurse will
co-ordinate all the items of the grant that are related to e-medicine. Jenny
is our technical support person and will help collect data as to how we can
change their IT structure. This has been in the planning for many years now.
We just need to collect data and write up the grant together. It is a
multi-year grant. Of course, me speaking at the conference will help in
gathering more people into our mission. That will be for the other project I
help with, whereby we use the local train and go to the villages to provide
medical support and education. This will be a worthwhile trip in may ways.
My wife will help with the medical part as will I and Jenny will help with
the e-medicine part when we attend to those in the villages. If you can help
in any way that would be much appreciated. The conference invitation gives
me the opportunity to go there and get some things done that are on the back
burner for a while.

I share your request with our group. I encourage you to write directly.
Congratulations on your invitation to speak in Nairobi . I don't know of
any person or group who provides such support for such travel, but
perhaps others do. Also, is there work that you might do or services
that you might provide?
Thinking out loud,
