allAfrica.com: Africa: Toll-Free Mobile Service to Give Rural Africa Access to Medics (Page 1 of 1)

allAfrica.com: Africa: Toll-Free Mobile Service to Give Rural Africa Access to Medics (Page 1 of 1): "A toll-free mobile service being launched in selected remote areas in Africa promises to save lives by connecting people with emergency medical cases to health personnel.

Under the initiative launched in Nairobi on Wednesday, health workers will also be trained through mobile phone sessions on day to day skills like collecting and sharing basic household health information.

Telecommunication equipment provider Ericsson and mobile phone service provider Zain have adopted the new approach in a bid to stimulate the demand of mobile solutions in areas they consider commercially challenging."
