mHealth Working Group
Founded in August 2009, the mHealth Working Group is a collaborative forum for sharing and synthesizing knowledge on mHealth, facilitated and supported by the K4Health Project.
Composed of more than 500 individuals representing over 150 organizations worldwide, the mHealth Working Group seeks to frame mobile technology within a larger global health strategy. By applying public health standards and practices to mHealth, we promote approaches that are appropriate, evidence-based, interoperable, and scalable in resource-poor settings. The Working Group holds regular meetings in Washington, DC, to discuss promising approaches, challenges, and lessons learned.
Minutes from previous meetings, as well as more information about the group, are on the mHealth Toolkit at /toolkits/mhealth. New participants are also welcome to receive future group announcements by joining the listserv at www.k4health.org/toolkits/mhealth/mhealth-listserv.
If you would like to host a future meeting, please contact either Kelly Keisling (email@example.com) or Laura Raney (firstname.lastname@example.org), mHealth Working Group co-chairs.
