ABOUT THE mHEALTH ALLIANCE
The mHealth Alliance (mHA) advances mHealth through policy research, advocacy, and support for the development of interoperable solutions and sustainable deployment models. Working with diverse partners, the mHA sponsors events and conferences, leads cross-sector mHealth initiatives, and hosts HUB (HealthUnBound)
mHA is positioned at the leading edge of the mHealth ecosystem as a convener to unite existing mHealth projects and guide governments, NGOs, and mobile firms to deliver innovative and interoperable solutions in this exploding field.
The idea for the mHealth Alliance emanated from a July 2008 conference in Bellagio, Italy on the future of mHealth, during which participants committed to forming a non-profit mHealth Alliance to maximize the impact of mobile health, especially in emerging economies, by ensuring interoperability and open-standards based solutions.
Launched at the GSM Association Mobile World Congress in February 2009 by the United Nations Foundation, Rockefeller Foundation, and Vodafone Foundation, the mHA now includes the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), GSM Association and HP among its founding partners.
