Sean Blaschke
Sean Blaschke spent much of the last twelve years working on the convergence of technology and development in West, Central and Southern Africa. He witnessed the explosion of mobile phone ownership in rural Gambia in late 2001 during his work with Peace Corps and two years later, while serving as the National Media Coordinator for the Department of Forestry, was instrumental in building key partnerships between fledgling telecommunication companies and the Gambian Government. Between 2007-2009, Mr. Blaschke earned his MA in Economic and Political Development at Columbia University, and in 2008, began work with UNICEF HQ coordinating mHealth projects in Malawi (which won best global ICT innovation by USAID in their 2008 “Development 2.0 Challenge”), Rwanda and Ethiopia. Mr. Blaschke currently serves as the Health Systems Strengthening Coordinator for UNICEF Uganda, and supports global UNICEF efforts related to mHealth strategy and regional deployments.
