Education and COVID-19 Response
Despite efforts towards achieving Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 9 – innovation, industrialization, and infrastructure – nearly half the global population are still lacking access to broadband - disproportionately affecting women, minorities, and poverty-stricken areas. To address global inequality, we must ensure a world where everyone has access to life-changing technology. This can be done trough our efforts in expanding access to mobile, strengthening private-public partnerships, and accelerating the proliferation of 5G.
