Increasing Healthcare Delivery by 270% to Underserved Communities Using a Scalable ICT Solution

A practical, disciplined approach that increases capacity and optimizes resources has moved beyond its pilot phase and is scaling successfully. In Nigeria, mobile healthcare teams armed with innovative, appropriate ICT expand healthcare capacity and increase healthcare delivery to underserved rural and urban areas and boost disease reporting rates. Since the pilot phase proved effectiveness and efficiency by increasing patients seen by 270% and disease reporting by 900%, it’s been successfully scaled to include more mobile teams, more communities, more primary healthcare clinics, more hospitals, and more trained clinicians—now reaching over 400 communities and expanding to 113 Local Government Areas.
