Resource constrained countries such as developing countries in Africa face a number of challenges. Although many ICT interventions in healthcare have been implemented, they still face many drawbacks. One of such initiatives is the implementation of pervasive healthcare applications such as personalised patient monitoring systems, telemedicine applications, intelligent emergency systems etc. Are these pervasive healthcare systems more applicable to developed countries than to the underdeveloped countries such as those in Africa? If not , do we have success stories of such implementations in resource constrained setting?
