New mHealth Alliance Initiative to Strengthen Mobile Health Capacity of Governments, Private Sector, NGOs
Date:9/12/2013

Dublin & Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 12, 2013

The mHealth Alliance today launched a new initiative aimed at building the expertise and capacity of global health stakeholders using mobile technology for health by connecting them directly to free consultations and tools, as well as a network of highly qualified experts in the field. The mHealth Expert Learning Program (mHELP), supported by Johnson + Johnson, seeks to address a persistent gap in the capacity of health programs and service implementers to design and deploy mobile health (mHealth) in low-resource settings. The launch of mHELP at the mHealthED conference in Dublin coincides with the first official call for applications from mHealth and electronic health (eHealth) professionals who wish to join the mHELP expert network.

“mHealth and eHealth are increasingly transforming the way public health and health services are being accessed by and delivered to those living in low- and middle-income countries, but institutions are often hindered by the lack of adequate expertise or experience,” said Patricia Mechael, executive director of the mHealth Alliance. “In the course of the past year, we have moved from a question of ‘if’ mHealth to a question of ‘how’ do we approach it? mHELP’s unique model will open a direct channel to technical assistance and support for individuals, governments, the private sector, and non-governmental organizations, effectively filling gaps in capacity and giving global health stakeholders the tools and expertise needed to bring projects to scale.”

mHELP will focus on building global mHealth capacity by providing a variety of free services and tools to the mHealth community, such as an online question answering service and “how to” guides. It will also engage in formal assessment and technical assistance projects, matching high-level experts, along with capacity building and technology partners, to the needs of specific mHealt
