In 2009, Haiti’s national telecom company – Teleco – was rapidly losing market share and nearly $1.5 million a month in public funds. IFC helped the Government of Haiti and Viettel form a partnership that has turned around the fortunes of the company. Today, the new company – Natcom Haiti – has gone from 75,000 customers to 1.8 million and is turning a profit for both Viettel and the government.

www.ETCluster.org A 7.9 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal on Saturday 25th April in the city of Pokhara, 81km from Kathmandu. Tremors continued to be felt hours after the initial shock and as far afield as Pakistan, Bangladesh and neighbouring India. The ETC is working in close collaboration and consultation with humaniarian organisations, national internet and mobile service providers, and government authorities to ensure a coordinated ICT response in Nepal.
Haiti has long struggled with the problem of not enough physicians to tend to their medical needs. The 2010 earthquake only worsened the shortage. How do you encourage young doctors to train in Haiti and stay there to practice medicine? One solution is the Haiti Medical Education Project, which provides a virtual classroom via teleconferencing. Dartmouth-Hitchcock is at the forefront of this prototype for medical education in Haiti. The goal is to help Haiti to train the next generation of doctors to help heal their country.
This was my first draft I proposed to my former company (IT/Telecom field) to document their involvement with the humanitarian reliefs effort in partnership with United Nations. This is for the Haiti mission. I volunteered as a IT technician, but I got involved with WFP for the food distribution and the documenting of it. After my submission, I worked with my company for the public version of this film. Together we considerably re-shaped the format. We changed the look and feel of the film, shift the focus on different subjects and change the music. I decided now to publish my first initial work. Therefore I want to be clear of the following: NOTHING IN THIS VIDEO IS ENDORSED BY ANY COMPANY OR ORGANIZATION APPEARING HERE. In order to avoid any risk of misunderstanding of this poi...

Disasters disrupt national economies, severely weaken the poor and vulnerable and are recognized as major impediments to sustainable development and reduction of poverty especially in poor countries. The impact is even worse for those living in remote and isolated areas with no access to basic information and communication facilities that are essential to providing vital alerting information. In order to mitigate the impact of disasters, timely dissemination of authoritative information before, during, and after disasters is critical. ITU's activities in the field of radiocommunications make invaluable contribution to disaster management as they facilitate the prediction, detection, and alerting through the coordinated and effective use of the radio-frequency spectrum and the establishmen...

Trilogy International Partners wanted to raise awareness about the integral role wireless communication—enabled by its Voilà network—played in rescue and relief in Haiti. GLG knew a video would be the best way to tell the story, but how could we produce one without interrupting the great work still going on? GLG began to reach out to groups who'd been on the ground, and spokespeople from both Israeli Search and Rescue and Mercy Corps generously agreed to meet with GLG to share their stories. Based on these interviews and footage from the front line, we were able to create a video showing how Trilogy's Voilà network, by offering service, phones, and support, played a supporting role in the immediate aftermath of the catastrophic earthquake. Shown at the wireless telecom industry's premier ...
