DomoSat: technology made in France for a success story in Cameroon

The Observatory generates reports from its field missions, in order to provide additional information, testimonies and pictures on the actual operation of pre-selected initiatives. Although field reports provide certain facts for assessment, the site’s purpose is to report the existence of the projects concerned, rather than auditing them.

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.
