Mrs. Newman during the presentation emphasized importance of modern technology and how it has the power to make healthcare more accessible, cheaper, easier to reach, and easier to understand. She said, “just as access to healthcare continue to remain fragile, it’s especially important to explore the ways that technology can get better healthcare to more people”.
She was confident that, the items donated will add-up to ongoing efforts that has in recent times culminated in an increase in better healthcare provision and hoped that it will change the balance of forces that has hitherto kept this key sector in penury.”
