BBC’s mhealth service finds Indian audience
Over three million minutes of content have been accessed by users in Bihar since two mobile health services were launched in the Indian state in May 2012.
The two services in Bihar, Mobile Academy and Mobile Kunji, were launched as part of a Gates Foundation-funded programme.
Both services use interactive voice response (IVR) so that content is available for even the most basic handsets. Services are accessed via short codes that are common across all the major operators in Bihar.
Tariffs are the same for each operator too.
Health workers pay about $1.50 for up to 12 months access for completing the training course.
