Broadband telemedicine applications to assist victims in remote districts

ITU offers assistance in rehabilitation of telecommunication infrastructure
Geneva, 23 August 2010 - ITU Secretary-General Hamadoun Touré has issued a global appeal for contributions to assist the flood-affected victims in Pakistan. ITU's emergency telecommunications team is also working with the Government of Pakistan towards rehabilitating the telecommunication infrastructure, which has been rendered inoperative in many parts of the country.
The floods ravaging Pakistan are the worst ever in living memory.
Immediately following the massive earthquake that struck the Pakistan-India border area in October 2005, ITU sent 55 satellite terminals to help restore vital communication links. Fifteen of the terminals were from ITU's stock, procured following the signing of a co-financing agreement with Inmarsat Limited, which also contributed a further 40 regional broadband global network satellite terminals (RBGAN), free of charge.
