Program Overview

Mobile Health: Technology and Outcomes in Low and Middle Income Countries supports exploratory and developmental research to develop or adapt innovative mobile health (mHealth) technology specifically suited for low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), and the health-related outcomes associated with implementation of the technology. The program aims to contribute to the evidence base for the use of mobile technology to improve clinical outcomes and public health, while building research capacity in LMICs and establishing research networks in this area.

In the context of this program, mHealth includes the use of mobile and wireless devices (cell phones, tablets, etc.) to improve health outcomes, health care services and health research. The developed or adapted mHealth technology can include external hardware or software components for mobile or wireless devices.

Of highest interest are innovative, well-designed multidisciplinary projects that aim to generate generalizable knowledge for the field. See the full program announcement for details on the specific research interests of the participating NIH Institutes, Centers and Offices.
