Dear members,
I am thinking of implementing a project which might be related to  computers, health, and education. I would like your opinion on how realistic this would be and whether someone has done a similar project before.
My idea is that many people in developing nations do not have access to education and medicine, but if there was a program such as One Laptop per Child which would give them a computer with a program on there which might teach them basic medical skills and maybe have a diagnosis program where they enter symptoms and get the most likely causes and remedies. That way, there would be more people capable of handling a medical emergency and lives might be saved. It would also be good if there was a small medical kit to go with the computer. Also, maybe it could teach others things as well. Of course, I have no idea where I would get the funding or medical supplies, but I would be grateful if you could point me in the right direction.

Any feedback would be appreciated.,

Kate Khazanova
