mHealth Basics Study Group

This study group will be facilitated by Trinity Zan and Nandini Jayarajan of the Knowledge for Health project. Trinity has extensive experience in implementing mHealth programs in the field, including the m4RH project that is included as a case study in the course. Nandini currently manages the Global Health eLearning Center and has ICT-related field experience in Madagascar and India.

Between January 12-29, 2015, Trinity and Nandini will guide you through the course via a series of thought-provoking discussions. We ask that you come prepared to answer the questions based on knowledge you have gained taking the eLearning course and from your own work, to ask your own questions, and to learn from each other.  Our goal is that you will feel empowered and inspired to apply what you have learned from the course and from each other to your work.

In addition to Trinity and Nandini, there will  be mHealth experts from a number of organizations representing donors, implementers, and technologists actively participating, sharing their best practices and lessons learnt, and answering your questions.
