The Case for mHealth in Developing Countries

03 DEC 2010

"The aim of this paper is to encourage reflection and discussion around the potential of mHealth in developing countries and to consider how early experiences can inform the way forward. Toward this aim, the writter synthesizes many reviews and presentations from the eight years she has been studying the evolution of mobile phones and health in developing countries. She includes observations and discussions that are now shaping the creation of mHealth as a field, to highlight the ingredients we need to move from a series of pilot projects and isolated business opportunities to a full-scale maximization of health-related benefits."
