PDAs and Cellphones Can Save Lives
In "Saving Lives With a Simple PDA," FORTUNE looks at how technology can bring changes and benefits to developing countries. The article focuses on bridges.org, a nonprofit consulting firm based in Cape Tow, South Africa. This group consults for governments in Africa as well as for the World Bank on IT-related projects.

In one successful project, doctors in Kenya received Palm handhelds loaded with up-to-date medical reference documents. In another one in South Africa, people affected by tuberculosis receive daily SMS messages in local languages to remind them to take their medications. You'll find more details in this overview.
