Collaboration Will Provide Technological Infrastructure to Train Health Workers in Emerging Markets

 

   

NEWS HIGHLIGHTS

  • Intel and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), are working together to advance the quality of care provided to women and newborns by strengthening the skills of midwives and other frontline healthcare workers using technology.
  • The program will use software and technical assistance provided by Intel and training content provided by UNFPA.
  • Initial collaboration will focus on 3-5 high-burden maternal death countries in 2012.

 

 

UNITED NATIONS, New York and SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 30, 2012 – The high number of unnecessary deaths during pregnancy and childbirth is unacceptable for Intel Corporation and UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund.

 

In an effort to combat that statistic, Intel and the United Nations agency, also known as UNFPA, today announced a joint commitment to strengthen the skills of midwives and community health workers through technology and training materials from the two organizations. The new initiative will increase the capacity of health workers around the world through software and technical assistance provided by Intel and wider availability of higher-quality education through training and materials furnished by UNFPA. Boosting the skills and quality of services provided by frontline health workers isthe goal of this effort.

 

Intel will build on its commitment to the United Nations "Every Woman, Every Child" initiative to help train 1 million frontline healthcare workers by 2015 under the Intel 1Mx15 Health initiative. According to the United Nations, every year, about 360,000 women die in pregnancy or childbirth and up to 2 million babies die within the first 24 hours of life, largely because they don't have access to properly trained health workers.

 

As part of the initiative, the Intel skoool™ Healthcare Education Platform will provide open access multi-media content delivery in an anytime, anywhere capacity. The content delivery and assessment platform will further educate and train midwives and other frontline healthcare workers. Additionally, Intel will work with various governments to help increase the availability, affordability and usage of technology in order to enable healthy lives.

 

UNFPA, a UN agency dedicated to improving maternal health, will develop the content and training for health workers, together with relevant partners and professional organizations at country and international levels. UNFPA will also engage national stakeholders to ensure the sustainability and multiplier effect of the program.

 

"We are looking forward to working with UNFPA to improve training for healthcare workers through technology and education," said Mike Gann, director of global healthcare for the World Ahead Program at Intel. "By increasing the accessibility and affordability of ICT solutions, we would be able to equip the workforce with the correct tools to improve women and children's health."

 

Countries with high rates of maternal and newborn death will pilot the program. The collaboration will bring new forms of technology and training to the hardest hit areas of India, Bangladesh and Ghana.

 

"With this innovative collaboration, we are putting game-changing technology into the hands of the people who are saving the lives of women and newborns around the world," said Werner Haug the UNFPA technical division director. "UNFPA is inspired by Intel's commitment and we look forward to strengthening the work for safe motherhood."

Risk Factors

The above statements and any others in this document that refer to plans and expectations for the first quarter, the year and the future are forward-looking statements that involve a number of risks and uncertainties. Words such as “anticipates,” “expects,” “intends,” “plans,” “believes,” “seeks,” “estimates,” “may,” “will,” “should” and their variations identify forward-looking statements. Statements that refer to or are based on projections, uncertain events or assumptions also identify forward-looking statements. Many factors could affect Intel’s actual results, and variances from Intel’s current expectations regarding such factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in these forward-looking statements. Intel presently considers the following to be the important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the company’s expectations.

 

  • Demand could be different from Intel's expectations due to factors including changes in business and economic conditions, including supply constraints and other disruptions affecting customers; customer acceptance of Intel’s and competitors’ products; changes in customer order patterns including order cancellations; and changes in the level of inventory at customers. Uncertainty in global economic and financial conditions poses a risk that consumers and businesses may defer purchases in response to negative financial events, which could negatively affect product demand and other related matters.
  • Intel operates in intensely competitive industries that are characterized by a high percentage of costs that are fixed or difficult to reduce in the short term and product demand that is highly variable and difficult to forecast. Revenue and the gross margin percentage are affected by the timing of Intel product introductions and the demand for and market acceptance of Intel's products; actions taken by Intel's competitors, including product offerings and introductions, marketing programs and pricing pressures and Intel’s response to such actions; and Intel’s ability to respond quickly to technological developments and to incorporate new features into its products.
  • Intel is in the process of transitioning to its next generation of products on 22nm process technology, and there could be execution and timing issues associated with these changes, including products defects and errata and lower than anticipated manufacturing yields.
  • The gross margin percentage could vary significantly from expectations based on capacity utilization; variations in inventory valuation, including variations related to the timing of qualifying products for sale; changes in revenue levels; product mix and pricing; the timing and execution of the manufacturing ramp and associated costs; start-up costs; excess or obsolete inventory; changes in unit costs; defects or disruptions in the supply of materials or resources; product manufacturing quality/yields; and impairments of long-lived assets, including manufacturing, assembly/test and intangible assets.
  • The tax rate expectation is based on current tax law and current expected income. The tax rate may be affected by the jurisdictions in which profits are determined to be earned and taxed; changes in the estimates of credits, benefits and deductions; the resolution of issues arising from tax audits with various tax authorities, including payment of interest and penalties; and the ability to realize deferred tax assets.
  • Gains or losses from equity securities and interest and other could vary from expectations depending on gains or losses on the sale, exchange, change in the fair value or impairments of debt and equity investments; interest rates; cash balances; and changes in fair value of derivative instruments.
  • The majority of Intel’s non-marketable equity investment portfolio balance is concentrated in companies in the flash memory market segment, and declines in this market segment or changes in management’s plans with respect to Intel’s investments in this market segment could result in significant impairment charges, impacting restructuring charges as well as gains/losses on equity investments and interest and other.

NATIONAL RETAIL FEDERATION CONVENTION, New York, Jan. 16, 2012 – Intel Corporation is working with retailers to apply technology in new and innovative ways. The company announced that it is collaborating with HSN*, Kraft Foods* and Macy’s* to pilot a series of new retail solutions designed to deliver more relevant and entertaining experiences to shoppers.

 

By using Intel-based technologies, retailers are able to integrate the information-rich experience of online shopping with the advantages of physical locations. Built on 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processors these solutions allow retailers to create visually stunning experiences that engage shoppers, deliver customized content and help them make better-informed purchases. For retailers, these solutions are easy to manage, cost-effective and can result in increased satisfaction, higher sales and fewer returns.

 

“Today’s consumers are increasingly mobile, connected and inundated with information,” said Michelle Tinsley, general manager of Intel’s Personal Solutions Division. “As a result, retailers are searching for new ways to deliver more personalized brand interactions that effectively reach their target audience. Intel is working with these industry leaders to drive the transformation of shopping through high-tech retail solutions that will change how brands engage and connect with shoppers.”

 

In an effort to expand its reach and interaction with shoppers beyond TV and the Internet, Intel collaborated with HSN to develop a massive interactive touchwall. The solution allows HSN the opportunity to engage with consumers at various food and wine events throughout 2012 by offering a virtual cooking class with world-renowned chef Wolfgang Puck. This initiative encapsulates all of HSN’s recent digital advancements – mobile, gaming and social – into a fun shopping experience that can be offered virtually anywhere.

 

As digital signage quickly becomes a new method for marketers, it is imperative that the industry be able to provide measurable results to advertisers while delivering more relevant content to consumers. Retailers that integrate Intel Audience Impression Metric Suite (Intel® AIM Suite) into solutions are able to quickly change featured content to meet the demographic of the consumer, providing a more personalized shopping experience. Intel AIM Suite also anonymously collects valuable shopper data so retailers can more accurately measure campaign success.

 

Using Intel AIM Suite, Kraft Foods and Intel developed the DIJI-TASTE Sampling Experience, an interactive solution that distributes product samples based on audience metrics to target a specific demographic. The first deployment of the DIJI-TASTE Sampling Experience anonymously detects the age bracket of the user and offers a complimentary sample of TEMPTATIONS by JELL-O desserts to adults who approach the station. The JELL-O DIJI-TASTE experience is currently deployed at the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago and South Street Seaport in New York.

 

Macy’s is also testing the Beauty Spot at four of its stores in an effort to assist shoppers in finding and evaluating cosmetics and fragrances. Shoppers can use the stations to get detailed information about beauty products, as well as download useful information to their mobile devices about cosmetic trends, new products and seasonal promotions.

 

These pilot solutions build on a number of other efforts in which Intel has worked closely with leading brands over the last year to roll out innovative solutions. Intel has also collaborated with adidas*, the LEGO Group* and Petrobras* to bring engaging consumer experiences worldwide.

 

Intel is showcasing these solutions in its booth at the National Retail Federation (NRF) Annual Convention & Expo, Jan. 15-18, in New York. More information on the demonstrations is available in the NRF press kit.
