Claire Thwaites, head of Vodafone Foundation and United Nations Foundation Partnership: “We are looking at how mobile communications can improve health care.” She says some of the areas mobiles are being used include SMS text alerts to enable patients adhere to their prescriptions, education programmes to improve health awareness, data collection and training of health care workers.

 

Mobile technology has the potential to revolutionise health care in developing countries, particularly in the area of heath awareness schemes and training health care professionals.
