A Smile with ICT returns with a new generation

A Smile with ICT returns with a new generation

This Wednesday marks the official start of the “Um Sorriso com ICT – Nova Geração” initiative. The project, which in its initial version opened 24 spaces, is back to provide the pediatric areas of public hospitals with technological infrastructures.

A Smile with ICT is a government initiative, implemented by the State Secretariat for Youth and Sports, through the FDTI, in partnership with the Ministry of Health, which also has the collaboration of public hospitals as dissemination partners.

The project is aimed at children admitted to pediatric units in hospitals aged between four and 14 years.

The objective is to equip the pediatric units of public hospitals with technological infrastructures that allow hospitalized children moments of leisure and monitoring by family or friends, even if physically distant.

The operationalization takes place through the combined implementation of infrastructures (multimedia computers with broadband Internet connection) and recreational-training content for hospitalized children.

Upon his return, the initiative has the partnership of JP Sá Couto, Tsunami, telecommunications operator Optimus and Porto Editora.
