PROJECT OVERVIEW

In an effort to supplement their global health and nutrition programs with mobile technology, World Vision has partnered with Dimagi and Grameen Foundation to deploy MOTECH Suite. To date, World Vision has adapted and contextualized five standardized mobile health (mHealth) applications in ten countries in Africa, India, South and Southeast Asia, with plans to start deployment to six more in 2014. These programs utilize the applications for maternal, neonatal, and child health and nutrition, which are designed to support Frontline Health Workers (FHWs) to deliver these services more efficiently. The solution serves as a job aid and monitoring tool, and includes components to reinforce intervention protocols. The applications leverage standardized content and collaborative design, enabling support for FHWs and potential for stronger service delivery at a global scale.
