In Haiti, it is a core function of the Ministry of Public Health and Population (MSPP)—through its Directorate of Health Service Organization (Direction d’Organisation des services de la santé, DOSS)—to define the set of health services to which every Haitian must have access and to enable and equip health providers and facilities to effectively, equitably, and accountably provide those services.

"My passion for babies was born from personal experience. I lost my parents at a very early age,” recalled Dr. Kouamé Kouadio, Head of the Pediatric Department at the Regional Hospital Center of Yamoussoukro, the administrative and political capital of Côte d'Ivoire.

Management Sciences for Health’s work across the digital health spectrum was shared at the Global Digital Health Forum 2017 (GDHF 2017) in Washington, D.C. December 4-6, 2017. The GDHF is the premier global conference on the use of digital technology for health in low- and middle-income countries. MSH is an Advisory Board Member of the Global Digital Health Network and contributed substantially to development of the conference. The theme this year was The Evolving Digital Health Landscape: Progress, Achievements, and Remaining Frontier.

In the global fight against malaria, National Malaria Control Programs (NMCPs) play a central role in leading national-level malaria control efforts. For NMCPs to fulfill this role, both the individual NMCP staff members and NMCPs as organizations must have the knowledge, skills, behaviors, and attitudes to successfully lead, coordinate, and manage malaria control efforts at all levels of the health system.

Even before the 2010 earthquake, Haiti’s public health system struggled to meet the growing demand for services by low-income families, and when disaster struck on January 12, 2010, the already-struggling health services around the country sustained extensive damage. Since then, the Ministry of Public Health and Population (MSPP), with support from a range of donors and partners, has been rebuilding to meet its obligation to provide a timely, adequate, and efficient response to the population’s need for health services.

"In 2010, I was shocked to meet a child whose whole future was at risk, just for lack of a birth certificate," said Dr. Fougnique Tuho, head doctor of Kaniasso Health Center in northern Côte d'Ivoire. "Without this piece of paper, a child could not even take the entrance examination for sixth grade."

Chief Victor Joseph Ntuen is village head of Onuk, Ukana clan in Essien Udim Local Government Area (LGA) in Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria. He and his wife Emem have five children. Their youngest, 11-month-old Rosemary, fell seriously ill in January. She constantly vomited and had diarrhea for over one week. Baby Rosemary was diagnosed with cholera. Chief Ntuen was devastated at the thought of losing his baby girl to the cholera outbreak ravaging the community. But, they had no money to take Rosemary to the hospital for treatment. He and Emem had just paid their older children’s school fees.

Many discussions on incorporating technology in the health field revolve around flashy mHealth tools which improve overall health information systems. Yet smaller scale use of mobile technology can be just as effective in supporting health workers in developing countries to overcome day-to-day challenges and effectively deliver health services, especially in rural communities.
