|mHealth for Brazil’s Indigenous Communities|
Source: UN DISPATCH.
At the Mobile World Congress underway in Barcelona today, the UN Foundation and Vodafone Foundation announced a new initiative to study how mobile health technologies may be harnessed to improve health care in Brazil’s indigenous communities. These are among the most remote and hardest to reach places on earth so there is a great value in exploring how mobile technology can streamline the delivery of healthcare.
