GSMA Country Feasibility Report: Nigeria 2014
The GSMA Mobile for Development mHealth programme connects the mobile and health industries, with the aim of developing commercially sustainable mHealth services that meet public health needs. In June 2012, the GSMA mHealth programme launched the Pan-African mHealth Initiative (PAMI). PAMI has been funded by UK Aid and Norad to support the scale-up of mHealth in nutrition and maternal and child health, in support of the Millennium Development Goals 4, 5 and 6. PAMI is closely aligned to the UN’s Every Woman Every Child Initiative, Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) and the Global Nutrition for Growth Compact.At Nigerian country level, PAMI is aligned with the Saving One Million Lives initiative launched by President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, where mHealth was identified as a critical ICT enabler.
