The workshop will be held on Thursday, July 27, 2017, in Abuja, Nigeria. This event follows the recent partnership between AfriLabs, the largest network of African technology hubs, and the pan-African ICT 4 Social Innovation Network, founded by SPIDER & iHub Kenya. The workshop is organized by Management Sciences for Health (MSH/IdeaLab) and AfriLabs in collaboration with SPIDER and iHub Kenya.

The theme of the workshop is ‘Leave no one behind – a multi-sector action for African ICT solutions to bridge gaps through social innovation’ and it aims to provide a platform for cross-sector collaboration to discuss key issues in health, education, and rights to identify key partnership opportunities within the West African sub-region.

The workshop which is highly interactive and is organized around a series of presentations by experts on the above-mentioned theme will be followed by focused discussions around:

Ø The challenges and opportunities in ICT4Development (ICT4D)

Ø Practical applications/successes

Ø Next steps on network sustainability

Participants for this workshop include Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), private sector agents, researchers, government officials and technology experts.

This event is a milestone in bringing African tech experts to make a reality of problem-solving so that we can collectively be a region known for secure, innovative, and inclusive ICT infrastructure which enables Nigeria and our neighbors to have better education, health, and transparency.

Leading up to the ICT 4 Social Innovation Conference in Abuja, this coming October, there is an urgency to highlight Western African Social Innovation through ICT.” ­– Benjamin Akinmoyeje, Management Science for Health (MSH).
