Low-resource mHealth

Some new terminology? ‘mHealth in low-resource settings.’ The idea is not alien to our readers spanning the globe–the use of SMS in health reminders and drug anti-counterfeiting (Sproxil) plus uses of smartphone telemedicine in developing countries (MIT Sana). But this is the first time that Ed. Donna has seen this terminology used. A sure sign that it’s a burgeoning area? A Facebook page–this sponsored by the Royal Tropical Institute (KIT) of the Netherlands. Their purpose, resources and more is on their website.
