Phones for Health

The Phones for Health initiative works to help developing countries in Africa use wireless technology to manage the information requirements of large-scale health programs.

Phones for Health

In the $10 million Phones-for-Health public-private partnership, PEPFAR, the GSM Association Development Fund, Accenture Development Partners, Motorola, MTN and Voxiva will leverage technology to connect health systems in 10 countries by 2010. This partnership concentrates on the need for a health care infrastructure that adequately addresses the HIV/AIDS pandemic. Phones-for-Health will make timely, relevant information available to program managers and service providers, while also helping PEPFAR achieve its ambitious prevention, treatment and care goals.
