The Centralised Monitoring System (CMS) will be operational in 10 of the country’s 22 telecom “circles” (i.e., regions) by the end of the year, according to the Press Trust of India. The far-reaching surveillance program rivals the worst in the world, and makes the US National Security Agency (NSA) look like a model of restraint.

Opening FOSS doors to women

Dear HIFA and CHILD2015 members,
The open access journal Global Health: Science and Practice provides an overview of mHealth, and a ‘new framework [that] lays out 12 common mHealth applications used as health systems strengthening innovations across the reproductive health continuum’.

Applications 1, 6 and 9 are of particular relevance to HIFA and I reproduce these sections below. I recognise many of the highlighted projects: Mobile Alliance for Maternal Action, BBC World Trust Mobile Kunji project, Dimagi’s CommCare Health Worker systems, electronic-Integrated Management of Childhood Illnesses, and eMOCHA. I look forward to learn more about the latest innovations using mobile phones to meet the information and learning needs of citizens and health workers.

The full text is available here:

mHealth innovations as health system strengthening tools: 12 common applications and a visual framework Alain B Labrique, Lavanya Vasudevan, Erica Kochi, Robert Fabricant, Garrett Mehld Regarding the specific incident that happened on this list – some have pointed out that the list-moderator may have over-reacted. FWIW, my
personal opinion is that this incident is something that is similar to a paper-cut bug[5]. While a (real world) paper-cut is not seriously damaging, it causes quite a bit of pain, and probably a 100 paper-cuts would cause death. So it’s important to address paper-cuts.

Best,
Sayamindu
