mHealth as a tool for integrating systems strengthening in sexual and reproductive health programming


The growth in capacity and geographic reach of mobile technology has important implications for health and development. While mobile technology is commonly used to address health systems challenges, Pathfinder International is exploring the application of mobile technology to improve implementation for sexual and reproductive health and rights, necessarily moving beyond strictly health system interventions to navigate the social determinants of health at the community level. This publication discusses Pathfinder’s experience integrating mHealth for this purpose, distilling lessons from our global efforts to apply mHealth for strengthened linkages between health systems and communities, placing particular emphasis on our implementation experience in Mozambique, Tanzania, Nigeria, and Haiti.
