The Satellite Applications Catapult is undertaking a project with Cayetano Heredia University in northern Peru to improve healthcare provision in the remote areas of the Amazonia. The project will analyse and research the technological gaps,  that can better support patients and practitioners in the local Peruvian communities. The project focuses predominately at maternal, newborn and child health, as well as tropical disease.

The aim of this workshop was to understand technical challenges, and identify enabling solutions that could improve Peruvian mobile healthcare facilities in rural areas.

The workshop provided information on the Prosperity Fund project and partners, an introduction to these technologies and services, as well as future opportunities in Peru.

This is the first workshop within the scope of the project, click here to view information about the second workshop organised in Peru in November 2016.
