There has been rapid increase in the mobile health (mHealth) space, as we are starting to see more evidence, activities, and funding opportunities.

Some mHealth Publications:

-          The role of mhealth in the fight against Tuberculosis

-          Advancing the dialogue on Mobile Finance and Mobile health: country case studies

-          mHealth: New Horizons for Health through Mobile Technologies WHO

-          PAHO/WHO eHealth Regional Strategy

There are implications for each of these opportunity areas that must be accounted for by mHealth stakeholders to ensure we create an enabling environment.

In line with PAHO’s mission, the mHealth field is in need of strategic collaboration to strengthen health systems and advance health outcomes.

Improve the community’s understanding of trends in the fast-growing mHealth ecosystem and identify opportunities for collaboration among partners to improve health outcomes.
