mHealth in West Africa: A Landscape Report

Many of the sub-Saharan Africa mhealth activities featured in various mhealth compendiums, databases, conferences, and high-visibility partnerships are located in the eastern and southern African countries. Less information is available about mhealth opportunities and barriers in West Africa. The USAID West Africa Regional Health Office commissioned the SHOPS project to conduct a landscape analysis of mhealth in West Africa with two objectives: (1) assess current applications, stakeholders, trends, and barriers in the use of mobile technologies to improve health outcomes (mhealth) in the West Africa region; and (2) identify promising mhealth public-private partnerships for its two flagship projects addressing regional program needs in HIV.
