GatesCambridge.org has a new article up featuring my work with Mamás del Río.
I’ve written previously about the work I’m doing with MDR. The Gates article does a great job providing additional perspective as well as some recent developments with the project.
In February I went to Peru to meet with Magaly Blas and Isaac Alva, two global health researchers at the Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia (UPCH). UPCH is based in Lima, but Magaly and Isaac have projects both in and outside of the capital. When I was living in Lima in the last half of 2014 I started working with them on a project based in the Peruvian Amazon.
The project is called Mamás del Río.
This December at ACM DEV in London I met Richard Batty from the Good Technology Project. He and his collaborator, Michael Peyton Jones, are interested in using technology in development and seem very interested in going about it the right way.
I skyped with Richard and Michael last month. They just did a writeup over on their blog.
They asked about my general feelings on technology for the developing world (ICTD) as a discipline as well as what I think could be useful things for them to contribute to.
