April 7-8, 2014
As mobile phones and other devices become increasingly available and adaptable, demand for their systematic integration into reproductive, maternal, neonatal and child health (RMNCH) programs is growing. The MHTF is collaborating with Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and the World Health Organization to convene a technical meeting on mHealth for maternal health: how it can be applied, who can use it and to what effect it is needed.
By bringing together researchers, program implementers and evaluators from both the maternal health and mHealth communities, this meeting will facilitate discussions around the current state of mHealth for maternal health, prioritize future evidence needs and determine opportunities for sustained discussion and collaboration between the mHealth and maternal health communities. The 40-50 participants of this meeting will represent high-, middle- and low-income countries.
