Over the past decade, mobile health, or mHealth, has emerged as a cutting-edge tool for expanding access to health information and services around the world. mHealth uses mobile and wireless technologies, such as mobile phones, patient monitoring devices, personal digital assistants (PDAs), and mobile software applications (apps), to achieve health objectives. This Guide is intended primarily for global health technical experts, program managers, and staff working to implement mHealth solutions in low-resource settings. While some parts of this Guide will be more useful to mHealth novices than to experts, much of the information and tools available in this Guide will prove valuable to even the most experienced mHealth program managers and staff.
