In Africa, distance and a shortage of resources prevent millions from access to healthcare. Vodacom’s Mum and Baby initiative in Mozambique is a free service that links mothers up with healthcare services and information. Accessing these critical services and medical expertise can often be an issue, especially for people living in remote areas. This service uses mobile technology to expand the reach of healthcare professionals and provides accurate information relating to maternal, neonatal and child health, and overall well-being.
Our ability to deliver digital solutions like the Mum and Baby service presents enormous opportunity, but as our new Africa.connected e-Health report paper points out, partnerships between the public and private sector are vital if we are to drive better outcomes for all.
