DomoSat: technology made in France for a success story in Cameroon
Though the CICAT-LR network has only been operating in France until recently, new technologies have now made it possible to anticipate transposition to remote areas having no network coverage (neither wi-fi nor GSM) by using satellite communication technology. A pilot project has begun in Cameroon, whereby teleconsultations with doctors from Montpellier and Paris were made possible without any internet connection.
Recognized as being of public utility since 1999, the Pierre Fabre Foundation works to provide populations in developing countries with better access to medicines and quality care. Its five areas of intervention are the training of healthcare professionals, the fight against sickle cell disease, access to healthcare for vulnerable populations, e-health and dermatology. In 2023, the Foundation ran 35 programs in 21 countries in Africa, South-East Asia, Lebanon and Haiti.
