Since November 2012, USAID has published mHealth compendiums that highlight mHealth projects in Africa, with a few from around the world. Dimagi and CommCare were featured in six of the 30 case studies in the fourth and most recent mHealth compendium. Some of the featured projects include using CommCare to support MNCH with World Vision in the Middle East, fighting gender-based violence with RTI International in India, and support community health workers in Mozambique with Malaria Consortium.

About the USAID mHealth Compendium Vol 4: “Mobile and wireless technologies assist health projects in accurately assessing the needs of a target population, collecting and disseminating relevant information, and delivering cost effective health services. This fourth volume of the mHealth compendium, published in October 2014, is a collection of thirty-one case studies. Several feature mHealth tools that have great potential for contributing to strengthening health systems and supporting the response to disease outbreaks, such as the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. It also highlights the nine Principles for Digital Development, provides evidence for mHealth interventions, and identifies valuable databases, training materials, guidelines and toolkits for mHealth project implementers.”
