2017 Global mHealth Summary
Based on nearly a decade of experience deploying mHealth solutions, World Vision fostered 14 active deployments in eight countries in Africa, South and Southeast Asia this year. Noteworthy accomplishments in FY17 include the evolution of the multistakeholder engagement process in Sierra Leone to foster collaboration between health and information technology ministries, UN agencies, non-governmental organisations, private sector and community partners towards the integration of health systems strengthening and digital health. Additionally, World Vision is working with the Ugandan government and UNICEF to co-develop community digital health systems toward an aligned national enterprise architecture. Lastly, projects in Uganda, Sierra Leone and India undertook structured MAPS Toolkit3 assessments to highlight project strengths, challenges and readiness to scale.
