Prof Kwankam’s address titled “Beyond a national eHealth strategy: Structures for strategy implementation” identified five key structures that not only need to exist, but must work in close collaboration for successful implementation of the newly approved nation eHealth strategy of South Africa. He shared the podium with the Chairman of the MRC Board, and the chairman of the MTN Foundation, a major sponsor of Telemedicine and mHealth program at the MRC.
