mHealth for maternal health: bridging the gaps

Marc Mitchell presented a logic model that links the functions of mobile technology to improvements in client knowledge, provider competence, and health system strength, using examples of current projects to illustrate these theoretical linkages.

Garrett Mehl described some of the different aspects that make up mHealth and the taxonomy of mHealth. He suggested that mHealth is often used as a catalyst to improve interventions, and defined mHealth terms used as defined by the WHO mTERG group: mHealth strategy, mHealth technology and mHealth project.

Q&A and discussions follow each presentation.
