Mobile technology can reduce costs, improve access to health services, and strengthen health systems to meet the interrelated challenges of cancer and other non-communicable diseases. Experience has shown that even very poor and remote communities that only have basic primary health care can benefit from mobile health (or ‘mHealth’) interventions. The authors make a number of recommendations for integrating mHealth delivery research with the work of designers, engineers and implementers in large-scale delivery programmes.
