In its recitals, the standard signed by the head of Enacom, Claudio Ambrosini, states that, within the framework of social, preventive and compulsory isolation due to the pandemic of coronavirus, Information and telecommunications technologies “constitute instrumental means for the exercise of fundamental rights (such as health, food and education, among others), especially for the populations most vulnerable to possible contagions such as the elderly ”

“In order to optimize compliance with the program that involves one of the most vulnerable of society before the pandemic of covid-19, it is necessary to redistribute the remainder of the device that was not delivered due to lack of presentation by the beneficiaries, and, consequently, expand the recipients of the program and extend it to new municipalities and / or other social, neighborhood and community organizations with a presence in neighborhoods popular “, indicates Enacom Resolution 705/2020.

While, in the case of older adults and women residing in rural areas, the municipalities will be responsible for drawing up a list with the potential beneficiaries and reassign the devices that were not delivered, corresponding to the program created in 2018.

Through Resolution 705/2020, Enacom then expanded the universe of recipients of this program to “the beneficiaries of Decree 311/20 and its regulations”, which was the one that ordered the prohibition of cutting services for non-payment during the term of the health emergency due to the pandemic to sectors in vulnerable situations.

Meanwhile, article 4 of the Enacom regulation published in the Official Gazette, authorizes municipalities to grant tablets to older adults residing in rural and suburban areas of their municipality. In turn, the Resolution establishes the instructions for the search for potential beneficiaries of said Program.
