We will focus on examples of how mobile devices are bringing healthcare to underserved communities in rural Africa. How can we diagnose pneumonia with a $5 machine hooked up to a cell phone? How does a glowing pill bottle and a cellphone connection ensure that 85% of people take their HIV drugs in South Africa? And, what can the US learn about these experiments vis-a-vis privacy, rural access, and cost containment.
