A coalition pushing open source health IT for Africa is raising money for the cause by selling a music album partly available as a free download at Amazon.com.
IntraHealth Open, whose goal is to improve health care in developing countries, has created an Open Council featuring such open source leaders as Red Hat, The Linux Foundation, GNOME, O'Reilly, and Novell.
The group believes that open source hardware and software, running on mobile networks, can revolutionize the health care system in the developing world.
Among the technologies being pushed is the Moca Project, sponsored by MIT, which uses Android-based devices and Linux servers to do scans, make simple diagnoses, and perform follow-ups using existing mobile networks and WiFi where available.
UPDATE: An IntraHealth spokesman writes to say that Moca is not technically part of their effort.
Or as N'Dour sings, Wake up this morning, this is Dacca calling.
