Abstract

The potential of mobile technologies to address health-related challenges has been widely acknowledged. The objective of this chapter is to identify factors that led to the successful implementation of mobile health interventions for public healthcare in the East African Community (EAC) and lessons learnt from these implementations that could assist in devising successful mHealth interventions. Findings reveal that forging partnerships with key stakeholders, adapting mHealth interventions to the cultural context, leveraging local opportunities, involving users in the design phase of interventions, planning for sustainability from the design phase of mHealth interventions, having a policy framework and a monitoring system to guide mHealth activities are key factors that led to the success of these interventions.
