DESCRIPTION:
HealthPhone is a venture of the Mother and Child Health and Education Trust – which uses communication processes to improve life chances for poor and vulnerable populations. A mobile phone, with basic health information embedded on the phone, will provide families in rural villages and slums with essential health information, in their hands, when they need it, in a language they understand and with visual information that works for those with low literacy levels.HealthPhone’s health and nutrition content is scripted on knowledge prepared jointly by UNICEF, WHO, UNESCO, UNFPA, UNDP, UNAIDS, WFP and The World Bank. It addresses the main areas of concern; Timing Births, Safe Motherhood and Newborn Health, Child Development and Early Learning, Breastfeeding, Nutrition and Growth, Immunization, Diarrhoea, Coughs Colds and More Serious Illnesses, Hygiene, Malaria, HIV, Child Protection, Injury Prevention, Emergencies: preparedness and response. This content will be pre-loaded on popular low-cost models of mobile phones – no signal is required, nor cost and knowledge to download videos and other media. Users choose what they want to watch and when, wherever they happen to be.
