The World Economic Forum was established in 1971 as a non-profit organisation; with headquarters in Switzerland, Geneva. The aim of this organisation is to constantly improve the state of the world by bringing people together who have drive and influence to make positive changes.
The <a href=”https://www.weforum.org/events/world-economic-forum-on-africa-2017″>World Economic Forum</a> is currently underway in Durban to address issues relating to Africa. There are a few important topics for discussion lined up for this event; one of which are “3 ways to fight the pandemics of the future”. This topic will touch on finding ways to improve the standard of healthcare in emerging markets.
In Africa the number of people living in rural areas that do not have access to health care is sitting at 83%. The importance and need for NGOs to provide medical equipment, health, food supplies and trained staff cannot be stressed enough.
The needs of the NGO community are unique to say the least. They often have to operate in war-torn and crime ridden areas with very little road infrastructures. Telecommunication is often non-existent, and they therefore need solutions that can cater to these needs, and at the same time, save them money. In over 10 years, Globaltrack has been proud to offer solutions to numerous NGO’s to suit their unique needs. One of Globaltrack’s latest innovation is the development of the Motorbike Tracking Solution.
Globaltrack has partnered with Fleet Forum to develop a trial programme to test the Motorbike Tracking Solution. Six NGO organisations are participating in the trial programme to determine to what extent the motorbike tracking solutions can add value to their organisation. At the Fleet Form Conference on 14 and 15 June in Brindisi, Italy, the first results of the trial will be presented.
In closing, if we work together to help support NGO companies in any way we can, we are aligned to the World Economic Forum’s mission to drive positive change around the world.
