AUTHOR(S): Harpreet Kaur
Information and communication technology (ICT) is a tool that facilitates communication and the processing and transmission of information by electronic means. In the 21st century, ICT is becoming increasingly important in health promotion and disease prevention. The widespread use of the Internet and mobile phones is currently challenging the way people are educated, supported and followed up. This paper sees health and fitness as a complex interaction of biomedical, social, economic, and political determinants. It highlights the ways in which ICT can be used as one of the tools to help meet the health-related Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Major constraints and challenges that need to be faced in integrating ICTs into health awareness are described. Some emerging technological trends that may shape future use of ICTs in the health sector are also given.
