COVID19 - Arab ICT Initiatives

Nowadays we are living, in the Arab region and all around the world, under the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak, which requires exceptional measures and the mobilization of all resources within the framework of unconventional emergency management plans.

The outbreak of the Corona Virus has forced countries to face difficult choices and produced specific challenges in all fields, especially healthcare with a heavy load on the economic and social levels ….On the light of the COVID-19 that we are witnessing today, telecommunications networks have come into view clearly, as never before, as the most vital and needed for ensuring our health and safety, and for preserving our economies and societies.

During this period, digital technologies have become more and more integral to the daily life as many countries and companies have switched for the online education and work. Within a glimpse of time, Governments, Institutions and Individuals around the world have also urgently accelerated the development of digital strategies that can help mitigate the disruptive effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on individuals, societies, institutions, companies and the economies alike.

For this purpose, and in the context of its commitment to support Arab countries and all stakeholders in facing this pandemic through digital technologies, the Arab Information and Communication Technologies Organization (AICTO) is developing a special platform for information and awareness. This platform is launched to put the light on the digital and technological initiatives and projects adopted in the Arab countries to confront the Corona pandemic.

This platform is open for all stakeholders in the Arab countries to publish their initiatives and projects. Please let us know about yours ! Send us all information to this e-mail :
