Grameen Foundation began working in Ghana in 2008 through a collaboration with the Ghana Health Service to improve the maternal and neonatal care in rural communities with the Mobile Technology for Community Health (MOTECH) initiative. Using the MOTECH platform, we have also developed mobile applications that provide information on sexual reproductive health to youth. Through the CHN on the Go initiatiave, we have also created a mobile app to provide professional development and support to frontline health staff.
In 2015, we launched a new initiative with Farm Radio International and Digital Green to increase food security for farmers in five regions as part of the New Alliance ICT Extension Challenge Fund. Using extension agents, mobile apps, radio, video, text messaging and voice messages, the initiative will provide farmers with the information and support needed to adopt technology that will increase their productivity and improve nutrition in their communities.
