We’re continuing with our Project Spotlights, where we highlight a specific project. Next week, we’re lucky to have the team members from eSaude (http://www.esaude.org/) in Mozambique that will be talking to us about how they built a local community to support a national Electronic Medical Record (EMR) implementation in Mozambique.
We wanted to introduce our 3 presenters
