26 February 2014

Qatar-based telecommunications company Ooredoo, winner of one of two licenses granted last year to provide retail mobile communications services in Burma, has announced the launch of its mWomen program in the country, reports the online Qatari daily The Peninsula. The partly state-run company made the announcement at the GSMA Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. The program aims to increase women’s access to information related to maternal health and other issues. “We work with content experts, NGOs and leading developers to ensure that the information is accessible, relevant and tailored for women’s needs,” said Ooredoo’s Group CEO Nasser Marafih. The program has already been implemented in Ooredoo’s other markets, including Iraq, Indonesia, Qatar and Algeria.
