Health eVillages launches new mHealth effort in Haiti
Health eVillages, the global mHealth program launched roughly two years ago by Physicians Interactive’s Donato Tramuto and the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice & Human Rights, has launched another program to deliver much-needed healthcare services to Haiti.
The Marlborough, Mass.-based program this week unveiled the Health eVillages College Outreach (HERO) program, which will place nursing educators from Weston, Mass.-based Regis College in the impoverished Caribbean nation and arm them with mHealth tools to help train clinicians there.
The program will begin by sponsoring two coordinators, one from Regis College and one from Haiti, in a health center run jointly by the Haitian Ministry of Health and Partners in Health in Hinche, a city in central Haiti. Partners in Health has been helping to deliver healthcare in Haiti for 25 years.
