Rural Pakistanis Benefit from Remote Telemedicine System

Wateen Telecoms and Motorola Provide Telecommunications Bandwidth and Equipment

With a population of 172.8 million Pakistan is one of the most populated countries in the world. The burdened healthcare infrastructure limits treatment of ailing Pakistanis living in rural areas. This is now changing with the implementation of a high-technology, remote telemedicine system.

Wateen Telecoms and Motorola are key partners in the initiative led by the U.S. Department of State and IBM. Wateen Telecoms, using Motorola equipment, donated the telecommunications bandwidth and equipment necessary to exchange the large amounts of information necessary to allow the doctors to make effective diagnosis.  The telemedicine system was made possible due to the creation of the largest WiMAX network in the developing world rolled out by Wateen and Motorola. The network enables the movement of large amounts of data between the clinic and the hospital.
