The research project – ‘mHealth for maternal and newborn health in resource-poor community and health systems settings, Sierra Leone’ – is funded by the DFID programme on New and Emerging Technologies, Research Competition. This technical brief summarises findings from Phase 1, a feasibility study which aims to generate further understanding of the key issues involved in mHealth (mobile communication technology for health, such as the use of mobile phones by health workers).
