Mobile Technology for Monitoring and Evaluation and Health Information Systems in Low- to Middle-Income Countries Abstract:

In many developing country settings, limited resources constrain the development and expansion of certain technology infrastructures — such as high-speed Internet — that could facilitate more efficient data collection and reporting in the health sector. Mobile technologies may offer an affordable alternative to (or alongside) other electronic health applications in many low-resource settings. In this paper, current  uses of such mobile technologies in the developing world are discussed, and how these approaches can be applied to improve national monitoring and evaluation (M&E) systems. Suggested guidelines on the use of mobile technology for M&E purposes are provided.
