mHealth for Development ~ Mobile Phones & Rx

Thanks to Scot Frank at MIT for spotting the latest UN Foundation report mHealth for Development: The Opportunity of Mobile Technology for Healthcare in the Developing World. The report looks at...
"...the rapidly evolving intersection of mobile phones and healthcare. It helps the reader to understand mHealth’s scope and implementation across developing regions, the health needs to which mHealth can be applied, and the mHealth applications that promise the greatest impact on heath care initiatives."
The whole report PDF is online and was orchestrated by a partnership of the UN Foundation and Vodafone Foundation and written by Vital Wave Consulting.
