Abstract

"mHealth in Practice: Mobile Technology for Health Promotion in the Developing World." Jonathan Donner and Patricia Mechael. Bloomsbury Academic. November 2012. --- There has recently been an explosion of interest around mHealth: the application of mobile communication technologies to support health initiatives in developing countries. This book aims to share research for better informed policy, programming, and investment in this area. Kate Saffin finds that this is a focused volume with contributions from leading researchers and practitioners, which aims to identify best practices in using mobile technologies to promote healthy behaviours and reduce unhealthy ones. Particularly useful for those working in the field attempting to design new campaigns, and academics involved in best practice and research.
