How can software used in e-health in Africa be useful in agriculture?

Jorn Braa of the University of Oslo is the coordinator of the EU-funded (Framework Programme 6 on ICT) BEANISH project: Building Europe Africa collaborative Network for applying IST in the Health care sector.
The objectives are to build Collaborative Networks between countries in Africa and between Africa and Europe on:
  • Applying IST (ICT) in health care for improved health services
  • Share learning and best practices in Health Information Systems
  • Share development and application of Free and Open Source SW
  • Capacity building
He explains how the open source software (DATA WAREHOUSE approach) is perfectly adaptable to e-agriculture Africa.
