eHealth and Innovation in Women's and Children's Health
A Baseline Review
This report, based on the findings of the 2013 survey of CoIA countries by the WHO Global Observatory for eHealth, shows how, on a daily basis, eHealth innovations are improving access to care and assisting women to take control of their own health. Advances such as these are providing pregnant women, mothers and young children with better health care services and advice. Case studies illustrate how, through the use of ICTs, health-care professionals and the women and children they care for are better able to share important health information as well as communicate among themselves more easily and effectively. This work has been so successful that what began as local projects have now been adopted nationally.
