Maghrebmed Portal
Theme: Electronic and Mobile Government
Implementation Date: Oct 07, 2006
Summary: Maghrebmed was created as a portal for promoting both health and ICTs and in particular for taking advantage of the Internet by disseminating health information and forging new patterns of health behaviour and best practices. The platform is based on a number of thematic web sites addressing professionals from the field as well as the wider public.
The concept of the web site is for it to be a one-stop portal that provides access to the wealth of knowledge resources available. In addition, it will serve as a forum for sharing information and knowledge, thus creating virtual communities. The access to accurate, up-to-date information on health, health facilities and related activities is expected to contribute to the improvement of the health condition of people in the region over the long term

Impact: By providing online information on health, medicine and dental care as well as veterinary information, Maghrebmed has created a one-stop portal to enable all Tunisians to acquire the most up-to-date information. This has enhanced the medical care in the country and made it more efficient.
Maghrebmed has also benefited the health tourist market by promoting thermal health as a brand of tourism. It has used the natural thermal waters of the region to attract more tourists to Tunisia. As a result, greater investments are being made in this sector so as to continue to increase the number of tourists, who are coming to the country in growing numbers.
