Intel Technology India Pvt Ltd in collaboration with other Intel World Ahead Program Alliance members and the Government of India announced a number of initiatives to help in transforming the healthcare and education in the old city of Chandini Chowk, Delhi.
Intel India has unveiled three projects aimed to accelerate access to education and healthcare to residents of Chandini Chowk. These projects are part of a global initiative under the Intel World Ahead Program that provides people with faster access to Information and Communications Technology. The project will address both healthcare and education needs for 2,000 children in the school, through a web-based solution that provide schoolchildren and faculty with digitized health records and health camps with participatory, action-based health learning. TCS and Intel are hoping to create a model that can be implemented in schools across the country, that will help ensure government-aided schools are safe and healthy places for children. This is the third such program, Intel has initiated in India as it expands its ICT efforts in education and healthcare. Two earlier projects have took place in Baramati in Maharashtra and Tindivanam in Tamil Nadu. Through its Intel World Ahead Program, Intel strives to improve education, healthcare, entrepreneurship and government services in developing countries worldwide, by accelerating access to computers, connectivity, technology training and localized Internet content.
