 The internet is changing Africa mostly for the better,

hansome peaceJun 2, 2019Read original

Internet was inaccessible in most developing countries in the past. For centuries, people living in such nations had limited access to information. They mostly relied on traditional modes of communication such as blowing horns.

However, internet networks are rapidly gaining popularity in Africa. They help bettors receive a Betway bonus code when they place bets. In this post, we discuss three ways in which the internet is changing Africa.

1. Improved Healthcare

Universal internet access will enable African governments to educate and train sufficient healthcare personnel. They could use geographic or labor-intensive healthcare models. Advanced internet technologies help hospitals offer prevention education and remote diagnosis which could save a lot of money.

Health facilities can adopt modern internet technologies for automated services and digitized record keeping.

Besides, they can easily provide health information to rural communities. For instance, Amref Health Africa applies remote training and e-learning in internet-based apps to recruit more health workers. Nurses use it to further their studies and to learn new healthcare techniques.

2. Internet Develops the Private Sector

Automated revenue collection could increase the productivity gains in Africa to about $25 billion.

For instance, it is compulsory for all Kenyan citizens above 18 years to have a tax number thus eliminating the old paper-based tax systems. The South African government digitized services such as tax filling and car registration. It received over 95 percent electronic tax returns in 2011.

Governments can offer essential services online to minimize their costs. Besides, it encourages investors to set up a wide variety of businesses. African governments should take advantage of the numerous opportunities unlimited internet access offers, according to the Global Shapers.

3. Financial Inclusion of all Communities

A huge proportion of Africans doesn’t have bank accounts. Some of them use traditional saving services. Fast and reliable internet facilitated the invention of M-Pesa in Kenya. It earned the government 3 percent of the country’s GDP. M-Pesa increased financial inclusion to about 20 million people. Econet revealed that Zimbabweans used the Ecocash platform to make financial transactions worth $3.1 billion in 2015.

Internet cuts down transaction costs you incur when sending or receiving money thereby offering additional disposable income.

Africa needs a new internet connection model which promotes sustainable economic progress. African governments should make provide internet to people living in a remote region to contribute to various development forums. However, they should regulate its usage to prevent hackers from accessing the personal data of certain individuals and organizations.
