ITU-D Achievements
(1992-2017)

Since 1992, the ITU Development Sector (ITU-D) has immensely contributed to the rapid growth and expansion of telecommunication/ICT networks and services. Telecommunications/ICTs are helping to expand and improve access to government services, health care, education, agricultural services, financial and banking services, and market information.
