The mHealth Working Group, facilitated and supported by USAID's Knowledge for Health (K4Health) Project, is gearing up to host the second annual Global mHealth Forum, November 10-11. The Forum will be held in partnership with the HIMSS Connected Health Conference and the mHealth Summit, November 8-11, at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center near Washington, D.C.

Here are just a few reasons to join us at the Forum:

  • Build your capacity to design, implement, and evaluate mHealth initiatives.
  • Explore emerging mHealth trends in low- and middle-income countries.
  • Discuss strategies to leverage mHealth in low- and middle-income countries.
  • Network with mHealth professionals and representatives from NGOs and ministries of health.

With more than 16 breakout sessions, two plenaries, and four interactive sessions to choose from, the two-day Global mHealth Forum offers something for all mHealth innovators. Sessions are organized into four tracks:

  1. Community Health interventions, perspectives, research studies, partnerships and technologies.
  2. Provider Challenges and Solutions, including community health workers, traditional birth attendants, midwives, doctors, pharmacists, lab techs, drug vendors, and more.
  3. Methodologies for Designing, Implementing, and Scaling mHealth with a focus on processes and approaches for design, development, and M&E.
  4. Enabling Factors, including partnerships, capacity building, financial sustainability, hardware, infrastructure, regulatory policies, and interoperability.
