This document is the report from a workshop that brought together public health and mobile technology experts. The group examined how the use of mobile phones and other related technology can improve health care delivery by supporting CHWs and integrated Community Case Management (iCCM) programs. The report presents scenarios that demonstrate how mobile technology can be used to: bridge gaps between suppliers and health providers; give voice to community demands; and, promote recognition of high-performing CHWs. The principles and recommendations presented in the report are being used to guide UNICEF country offices as they integrate real-time monitoring and mobile technologies into programming.
