Information and Communications Technology Response to the Liberia Ebola Crisis
USAID asked NetHope to provide an overview of the state of the information and communications technology (ICT) capabilities in Liberia in three key areas: (a) network and Infrastructure, (b) software and platforms, and (c) digital payments to be used as enabling tools to assist in containing Ebola.
This report was created as part of a two-week rapid assessment. It includes information from first-hand reports from multiple response organizations, discussions with USAID Mission staff in Liberia and implementing partners, and desk research. It is meant to provide a snapshot of the current on-the-ground situation in Liberia and is a first step toward a longer, more exhaustive assessment necessary to gather empirical data.
