Volunteerism and Humanitarian Engineering-Part II

Abstract : This Part II of the IEEE Technology and Society Magazine Special Issue on Volunteerism and Humanitarian Engineering focuses on perspectives from and about activities conducted outside of the United States. The first three articles in this issue describe the history and current philosophy of organizations akin to Engineers Without Borders (EWB) in three Western European Countries -- France, Spain and Belgium. The fourth article discusses engineering for people with disabilities. In contrast to previous articles' examples focusing on development projects or on the societal role of engineers, this article illustrates how humanitarian engineering can take place in an engineering laboratory. In another shift of emphasis, the final article in the issue presents a review of telehealth projects in sub-Saharan Africa with particular emphasis on the role of cell phone technology
