Indian funded tele-education and tele-medicine equipment for South Sudan
Thanks to the Indian Government funding, South Sudan is all set to start tele-education and tele-medicine services in the country. The project assistance was made by the Government of India as part of the capacity building program. Telecommunication Consultants India Limited (TCIL) confirmed having shipped the equipment for South Sudan.
The project, Pan-Africa e-Network Project, will help African countries by imparting quality education to students from some of the Indian universities. The project was taken up in 2009 and the Indian Government had an approved budget of over US$116 million.
Also a part of the project is a Continuing Medical Education (CME) for existing practicing doctors and nursing staff so that they can improve their knowledge and skills.
