Mobile Health Services

Our Initiatives

In rural communities health care providers tend to have insufficient means to manage information on patients and staff, and to report to government health agencies, which weakens the overall health system. Grameen Foundation India works with low income segments households who are highly vulnerable to disease, debilitating emergencies, and significantly shortened life spans. We have created a technology system, MOTECH, which enables government agencies to strengthen maternal and infant health by giving frontline health workers and women better access to vital information and services.
