Keywords:Africa, Ghana, healthcare, Mahiri Mobile, patients, platform, rural, Telmedx
The quality of healthcare varies greatly throughout Ghana. Urban centers are well served, with hospitals, clinics, and pharmacies. In comparison, rural areas often lack modern healthcare. Patients in these areas either rely on traditional African medicine or travel great distances for western healthcare.
In 2010, the Government of Ghana launched the national e-health strategy. The key components included streamlining the regulatory framework for health data and information management, building sector capacity for wider application of eHealth solutions in the health sector, increasing access and bridging equity gap in the health sector through the use of information and communication technology, and development of a paperless records and reporting system.
