Up for Debate: How Are Mobile Phones Empowering Women and Leading to Better Maternal Health?

7 responses

mHealth has the potential to transform healthcare delivery systems around the world. The first debate in a series on mobile health addressed how to move beyond the sector’s case of mHealth “Pilotitis”, which helped frame a live debate at the 2013 Skoll World Forum in April. mobilementum In this second debate, the Skoll World Forum on Social Entrepreneurship partnered with Johnson & Johnson, the mHealth Alliance, Impatient Optimists, and Forbes.com to take a gender lens to the way in which mobile phones are empowering women. This debate will set the stage for a larger discussion at next week’s Women Deliver conference in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
