People Centered Internet Article Features WiRED International



People Centered Internet (PCI) recently published an online article about WiRED International. WiRED board member Sameer Verma, Ph.D., works with PCI, and he and Allison Kozicharow, WiRED’s web editor-in-chief and board member, collaborated on the story. It describes WiRED from its beginnings in Croatia in 1997 to its position today as a global organization delivering free health information programs to underserved communities worldwide.


PCI is a well-known non-profit organization created by Vinton G. Cerf, Ph.D., that promotes humanitarian uses of the Internet. Widely known as one of the “Fathers of the Internet,” Dr. Cerf is the co-designer of the TCP/IP protocols and the architecture of the Internet.


Dr. Verma said, “The Internet as we know it today has come a long way since its inception in the early 1970s. Dr. Cerf was one of its co-founders. Now, after all these years, when half the world is online, Dr. Cerf has started PCI, a new initiative to address the other half that isn’t online as yet. We hope that in working with PCI, WiRED’s health information will increasingly find its way to those who are starting to come online.”


In addition to making its programs available online, WiRED now can deliver its health education materials to low-resource communities off the Internet grid through its new Health Module Access Program (HealthMAP).
