IDS Evidence Report No 1: Reducing Hunger and Undernutrition, March 2013
This report sets out to critically review the evidence base on the impact of using mobile phone technology for nutrition (and other) surveillance. By doing so, the report can offer a starting point for international donors, local practitioners and others who consider the application of mobile phones to facilitate surveillance. The evidence review also aims to identify gaps in the current knowledge base and to highlight areas where future research and analysis are necessary.
