We need to deliver vital messages and information to people at the lower quarter of the society, this information can be used for changing behaviors’ and practices, and this in turn can save and protect lives. It is in this context that the use of mobile phones in delivering vital health information and effective fieldwork reporting is of significance. This project seeks to use the availability of mobile service across the urban and rural areas to benefit healthcare.
