Jointly sponsored by World Bank Group and UN Foundation/mHealth Alliance, in collaboration with FNIH, NIH and others, the World Bank Day @ mHealth Summit will raise awareness of the possibilities for mobile-enabled innovations for improving health care and health care outcomes in developing countries and seeks to:
? Contribute to putting m-health on the map of the mainstream public health agenda.
? explore options as to how to translate mHealth applications into measurable health outcomes.
? provide concrete examples of experience at the country level – what questions to ask, what to look for, what tools are available, and what are the policy implications for implementation.
? establish a solid basis for future collaboration and continued dialogue on mHealth
This unique one-day workshop at the World Bank will convene over 30 leading experts from key organizations in the m-Health field and will bring together lessons, innovations, and perspectives from the practitioners and policy makers. The workshop will discuss specific case studies and country perspectives on m-health and scaling up mobile innovations in World Bank Health Sector Projects. World Bank mHealth Day is integral part of mHealth Summit (Oct. 29-30) focusing on mobile technologies as a platform for health research and health care delivery. The mHealth Summit is an unprecedented event that will bring together leading researchers, policy-makers, collaborators and visionaries from around the world to exchange ideas, novel approaches, research and findings surrounding mHealth issues both in the United States and in developing countries.
