UNESCO report

Fewer than ten percent of countries have laws that help ensure full inclusion in education. This is according to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation, UNESCO's 2020 Global Education Monitoring Report titled "INCLUSION AND EDUCATION - ALL MEANS ALL." The report provides an in-depth analysis of key factors for exclusion of learners in education systems worldwide including background, identity and ability, that is, gender, age, location, poverty, disability, ethnicity, indigeneity, language, religion, migration or displacement status or sexual orientation among others.

ICU Digitisation

An ambitious digitisation project that will not only improve the care of seriously ill COVID-19 patients, but also reduce the risk of infection to hospital staff, is being launched at the South African Cape Town-based Tygerberg Hospital. The digitisation of the hospital's COVID-19 intensive care unit, ICU, will do away with paper-based patient records that have to be manually captured by the patients' bedside, and replace it with a new digital system relying on cameras and computer tablets used to monitor patients' vitals. A partnership between Stellenbosch University and Western Cape Provincial Health hopes that this project will contribute towards improved care for patients with COVID-19, as well as a safer working environment for health care workers in the ICU environment. Senior pulmonologist at Tygerberg Academic Hospital's pulmonary unit, Dr. Brian Allwood explains..
