Mobile Application Helping Health Workers In Kenya Provide Family Planning Services

“Many of the conversations and discussions that took place [at the International Conference on Family Planning] centered on the use of mobile technology as a medium for creating greater access to family planning information and resources,” Diane Fender, vice president and blogger at Girls’ Globe, writes in the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s “Impatient Optimists” blog. She discusses Kenya’s use of ZIDI, “an innovative mobile application that improves the monitoring and evaluation of health services, including family planning, in dispensaries and clinics.” She concludes, “The ZIDI project is definitely making strides to bring innovation and new technology to help health care workers provide better service to women seeking family planning services” (11/18).
