Health

You are here

In rural communities around the world, poor households have limited access to trained healthcare professionals and information on health conditions and services. This limitation makes the poor highly vulnerable to disease, debilitating emergencies and significantly shortened life spans. In addition, health care providers tend to have insufficient means to manage information on patients and staff, and to report to government health agencies, which weakens the overall health system.

Grameen Foundation works with government agencies, the private sector and civil society to develop mobile health solutions to improve health outcomes for the poor. Through our solutions, beneficiaries can learn when and where to access care, healthcare providers can learn how to manage their caseloads more effectively, and ministries of health can access more reliable data from providers.
