The mHealth Alliance was established in 2009 to promote the use of mobile technology in health. With a focus on the developing world, the mHealth Alliance quickly became recognized as a potential meeting point for the global health and technology sectors. Two years after the launch, with much growth in use of mobile technology for health, the mHealth Alliance was seeking to sharpen its vision and strategy to increase its impact on the sector.Dalberg Approach
Dalberg worked with the leadership of the mHealth Alliance to refine their vision and establish a business plan for growth. Dalberg conducted a landscape analysis of the mHealth field identifying the key trends, gaps, and barriers in the mHealth space. This fact base was used to facilitate decision-making and consultations with a broad base of stakeholders to determine where the mHealth Alliance should focus and how they should work with members and partners to support the growth of the sector.Results
The mHealth Alliance's new strategy was launched at the mHealth Summit in December 2011 and is now in the process of implementing its new business plan.To learn more about our ICT and Mobile for Development practice area, click here.
In January 2010, Haiti was struck by a devastating earthquake that led to an estimated death toll of 300,000 people, the displacement of 500,000 people and the destruction of a large amount of the country's infrastructure. In this context, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation established a market-based prize to stimulate the launch of mobile money services. Dalberg partnered with the Haiti Mobile Money Initiative (HMMI) to provide market analysis to support the roll out of the prize and the development of the ecosystem over time.Dalberg Approach
Dalberg worked with actors across the mobile money ecosystem to provide market analysis into the emergence of the mobile mony ecosystem, the experience of NGOs using mobile money in disaster relief programming, and the market potential for payment solutions. Dalberg combined global and local research to stimulate further activity in the market.Results
Dalberg's research and engagement across the ecosystem was used as a platform for donors, service providers, and the Haitian government to help focus on the necessary steps toward developing the mobile money environment in Haiti.To learn more about our ICT and Mobile for Development practice area, click here.
