Date:12/9/2013

Washington, DC (PRWEB) December 09, 2013

The mHealth Alliance, an organization dedicated to advancing the use of mobile technologies to improve health outcomes in low- and middle-income countries, announced this evening the winners of the Holly Ladd mHealth Pioneer Award and the mHealth Alliance Collaboration Award. This marks the first time that the Alliance has extended these honors. Dr. Richard Gakuba of Rwanda received the Holly Ladd mHealth Pioneer Award, while the Ananya partnership of Bihar, India, received the mHealth Alliance Collaboration Award. The awards were presented at a dinner celebrating the Alliance’s fifth anniversary, which coincides with the fifth annual mHealth Summit, of which the Alliance is an organizing partner.

“These awards are designed to honor visionaries in the field of mHealth – individuals and organizations whose work serves as a shining example of what is possible when we use mobile technologies strategically to improve health outcomes in developing countries,” said Dr. Patricia Mechael, executive director of the mHealth Alliance. “We are delighted to have the opportunity to honor these outstanding members of the mHealth community, and we’re grateful to the co-sponsors that have made it possible to recognize them.”

The Holly Ladd mHealth Pioneer Award is co-sponsored by the mHealth Alliance, FHI 360 and the Rockefeller Foundation, and it includes a $5,000 cash prize and covers travel expenses to bring Dr. Gakuba to the mHealth Summit.
