Where Africa and Technology Collide!

African Doctors: Ingenuity in a Box

The World Health Organization has put together what’s being called a Blue Trunk Library to help doctors and medical professionals in Africa keep up to date and have access to medical materials when they are a long way away from other means of communication to other doctors (or the internet).  The trunk will have over 100 books in it, and it costs around $2000 to put one together.  

In order to make it easier to transport and store, the collection has been packed into a blue metal trunk fitted with two shelves on which the cardboard boxes containing the books are arranged.
