Description/achievement of initiative

Intel Corporation is pleased to announce support and commitment towards the United Nations Secretary-General's Every Woman Every Child effort. We firmly believe in this effort and that in the 21st century, all women and children must have access to quality healthcare. A strategic imperative for better access to healthcare will include empowered front-line healthcare workers with educational tools, computer literacy skills, and the latest computer and internet technologies. Intel plans to collaborate with governments, private industry, development community, and academia to launch in-country programs that help address the educational needs of at least one million front-line healthcare workers by 2015. We plan to share our healthcare expertise, industry standards leadership, and education tools to enhance computer literacy and health education for healthcare professionals and healthcare students. We need to foster a collaborative business environment where public-private partnerships can thrive and provide the innovation needed to create new sustainable business models that deliver "more health for the money". Intel is very excited about the opportunity to assist countries in achieving the important United Nations Millennium Development Goals for child mortality and maternal health.
