Violence against women: TSF in action
Chinandega is a department located in north-west Nicaragua, on the Honduras border. Combating violence against women is a major challenge because the department has to face several problems: domestic violence, prostitution, trafficking in human beings for sexual exploitation… Télécoms Sans Frontières developed an information system to reinforce the actions of the Movimiento de las Mujeres en Chinandega – MMCH (Chinandega Women Movement) in the field of prevention of violence against women as well as victim support.
Mobile technologies serving the health sector in Nicaragua
Since 2009, TSF has utilised technologies for information and communication management in the health sector. Having created an application to improve the monitoring of patients with malaria in Thailand, TSF leant its support to the Ministry of Health in Nicaragua (MINSA): TSF implemented an epidemiological monitoring system, using GSM technology, to fight the dengue fever epidemic in Managua, in 2009. In 2011, TSF reinforced the capacities of the System of Integral Health Services (SILAIS) in Jinotega to reduce maternal mortality rates, and improve the epidemiological monitoring. Today, TSF is still working alongside the MINSA and is supporting the SILAIS of Matagalpa in its fight against child pneumonia.
