The UPS International Disaster Relief Award (Small Company)
iDT Labs developed a hazard payment solution which helped to prevent the collapse of the healthcare system in Sierra Leone during the Ebola crisis and established their reputation in ICT for development.
Read the full case study.
- As the health system was on the brink of collapse in Sierra Leone, iDT developed a solution to pay the emergency workers in Sierra Leone. This programme is immensely inspiring. It is amazing how a company of this size tackled such a challenging issue at such speed in the midst of the Ebola crisis in Sierra Leone.
- Putting their core business to one side and creating a solution and ensuring its longevity at a time of great need, when the health service was on the brink of collapse, and in a context that is not used to ICT solutions, is incredible.
- This programme is an exceptional example of applied skills, commitment and great local partnerships.
