Synopsis:

The first book on m-health in developing countries, this volume is a comprehensive guide to the design and evaluation of m-health projects. Including original research in six countries and drawing on a wide range of international secondary material, it covers both theory and practice, elucidating the realities of program implementation and impact assessment with its thorough examination of cases and findings.

Divided into three parts, M-health in Developing Countries introduces:

  • An overview of m-health applications, uses and theories, emphasising a social science perspective.
  • A technology-community-management model applied with reference to developing countries.
  • Key concepts in m-health research, including the development of research questions, hypotheses, and approaches to formulating questions using both quantitative and qualitative methods.

This is the ideal book for all who wish to plan, execute and evaluate strategically sound health development projects using mobile technologies. It will be of use to students, researchers and professionals working with ICTs and healthcare from a range of disciplines from communication through public health to social science disciplines.
