Information and Communications Technologies (ICTs) are going to have a major impact on health and health systems in the near future.  To ensure that everyone (including the very poor) benefits from this new technology, it is vital that those designing new technologies, people responsible for health systems and social researchers come together to explore the opportunities and potential challenges, especially for low- and middle-income countries (LMICs).

This Rapid Response Briefing Paper was coordinated with inputs from Gerry Bloom, Linda Waldman, Alain Labrique and Kate Hampshire.
