At the same time, this report considers how mHealth innovations occurring in each are also instructive to one another. Many of the examples in this report are drawn from developed world contexts with a view towards how programs can be tailored for LMIC conditions. This report serves both as a resource and a call-to-action for all stakeholders including project implementers, organizations, the private sector, and policymakers.
