How UNICEF Uses Mobile Phones to Help Stop Ebola | UNICEF USA

In response to the crisis, UNICEF and partners have deployed a mobile technology called mHero, which stands for mobile Health Worker Electronic Response & Outreach. The platform is designed to work in developing countries such as Liberia, where more than 80% of the population lives under $1.25 a day, yet 97% of health workers own a mobile phone. mHero allows the Ministry of Health & Social Welfare to communicate critical information to frontline health workers via SMS.
