SWHITS was developed to fill in the gap witnessed in dissemination of information concerning students’ health.It has been aimed at providing better monitoring mechanism of the health of the school children, in increasing transparency and reviewing of the hygiene environment maintained at these residential institutes. The Principals/Medical Officers of the residential schools which are often located in remote areas send daily status of the general health of children (including cases requiring minimum treatment) as an SMS to the centralized office. A simple software application, using templates to furnish these basic details, is installed and used on the mobile phones of the school authorities to simplify the process of sending the SMS.This is done depending on the health status of the pupils from an institution over a period of time. This project is an innovative scheme in monitoring the health status of poor children from disadvantaged sections of the society enrolled in these residential schools.
