Public Healthhttp://techchange.org/online-courses/mhealth-mobile-phones-for-public-health/

28th-April 22nd 2016*


*Course Description*
In 2016, the number of global mobile subscriptions will reach 8.5 billion —
more than the number of people on this earth, and it took a little more
than 20 years for that to happen. Yet at the same time, health systems
around the world are struggling to:


   - Provide access to affordable healthcare for all
   - Treat infectious diseases such as Ebola, HIV/AIDS, Malaria, and
   Tuberculosis
   - Address crippling maternal and child mortality rates in low-income
   countries
   - Manage non-communicable diseases like heart disease, cancer, and
   Diabetes
   - Tackle infrastructure and supply chain challenges in remote settings
   - Train frontline health workers to provide care to vulnerable
   populations


Increasingly, Ministries of Health, companies, NGOs, and various bilateral
and multilateral donors are looking to mobile phones as part of a solution
for responding to these challenges.

This four-week, online certificate course will focus on building mHealth
skills that revolutionize approaches to patient care and management,
point-of-care support, health education, remote monitoring, diagnostics,
supply chain management & logistics and more.

A growing number of mHealth projects have been implemented across the world
from Guatemala to Uganda, from India to Argentina – we will explore what
has worked and what could be improved with each example, and invite
participants to share their own experiences in managing ongoing projects.
