Mobile Doc


World Vision is a global leader in the mobile health movement, which equips community health workers with mobile phones to help bridge information gaps.

Uganda community health worker Rabecca uses the mHealth app on her mobile phone to monitor 3-month-old Christine's progress with her mother, Proscovia. The app provides key health and nutrition messages, and it can assess and refer life-threatening cases to a nearby clinic.

Community health workers like Rabecca can use their cell phones to send and receive information on a particular patient, including progress reports, medical records, and reminders about appointments and treatments. They can access a wealth of medical information and connect to consulting physicians.

They also use their World Vision-issued phones to text questions after listening to informational radio broadcasts and for diagnosing illnesses through mHealth.

World Vision supports more than 220,000 community health workers and thousands of health-focused community groups — more than any other nongovernmental organization.
