From our first guest blogger: Lise Ellyin, Mozambique Country Director for the Clinton Foundation
Emanuele asked me to contribute to this great blog to discuss the Mhealth solutions being implemented in Mozambique, for which I am delighted to share on behalf of the Ministry of Health and partners. It seems fitting to be writing this while I am in China, a capital of technologies.
Innovative solutions are changing the way health services are delivered these days in Mozambique. The country has become one of the leaders in this area: in evaluating and implementing new diagnostic technologies and mobile health solutions, sharing these experiences globally via conferences, publications and most recently showcased in the WHO July 2011 Implementation guidelines.
