Message from Mr Ban Ki-MoonUnited Nations Secretary-General UN GAID Strategy Council Meeting27 Feb. 2007

With the launch of the Global Alliance for ICT and Development, the international community has taken that consensus a crucial step further. The Alliance is well placed to promote the use of ICT in fighting poverty, illiteracy and disease, in protecting the environment and empowering women and girls.

It is important that you work as a true partnership of all essential stakeholders – Governments, civil society, the private sector, academia and others. All of you are needed if we are to succeed.”
