2020 Digital Health Factsheet

2020 Angola Digital Health Factsheet

With support from The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, the eMobile tool was launched in 2015 in Angola with a primary focus on malaria control. The geographic scope of eMobile’s deployment is impressive with scaling to 32 municipalities or districts nationwide. 

eMobile uses an application called KoBoCollect, a free open-source resource for mobile data collection using ODK XForms software. Objectives of the project are to:

  • Promote malaria mitigation and use of public health information
  • Document awareness and behaviour change
  • Increase engagement, information technology and data capability of community development and sanitary agents (ADECOS)
  • Develop interactive data tools to track community trends and needs in real time
  • Identify strategies to expand the technical and data service capacities of the project’s Mobile Movies Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) to support a fully-scaled network of ADECOS
