Rural Chiapas might appear to be an unlikely place for mHealth initiatives to gain traction – with one person in four unable to read, and little cell phone reception or internet connectivity in the mountains, it would seem that accessing understandable information through mobile technology would be a challenge for health workers and patients alike. Yet the community health workers of Compañeros en Salud (CES) have found unexpected ways to make innovations in mobile health technologies work for them and strengthen their programs.

The Swahili health materials contest we announced in August, cosponsored by Hesperian, our Tanzanian partner COBIHESA, and K4Health, generated an impressive response. We are excited to announce that 22 new health materials are now freely available for download on our Swahili Language Hub! These excellent new resources cover topics from cervical cancer to training midwives, and from non-communicable to sexually transmitted diseases. People sent creative entries in every imaginable form: videos, fliers, brochures, posters, comic books, and more!
