ICTs can play a critical role in improving healthcare for individuals and communities. By providing new and more efficient ways of accessing, communicating and storing information. ICTs can help bridge the information divide that has emerged in the healthcare sector in developing countries, i.e. between health professionals and the communities they serve and between the producers of health research and the practitioners who need it. ICTs can play a major role in improving health conditions of the marginalized communities in the society. The benefits of ICTs in healthcare include: enabling remote consultation, diagnosis and treatment through telemedicine; strengthening the ability to monitor and respond to emergencies in a timely and effective manner; increasing the efficiency of healthcare facilities; facilitation of dialogue regarding major public  health threats; facilitation of collaboration among health workers, including sharing of widely adapted training approaches; and effective dissemination of and access to modern medical research findings,  etc
