Connected Life Loop
I strongly believe that technology and innovation can solve many basic issues related with sufferings of mankind.
ITU should promote "Connected Life loop", to integrate life saving information.
Health, education,women empowerment, catastrophe response center etc using vast Telecommunication network infrastructure.
A rapid and timely delivered "Notification" can save thousands of life in a remote area in the time of catastrophic events.
A connected school in a rural and remote village can learn and share knowledge with a modern and advance school in the city.
A breakout of disease information timely alerted in remote connected health center with cure advise.
These are small examples of "Connected Life Loop"
