Frances will talk about Amref’s innovative mobile learning platform LEAP, which is revolutionizing training for community health workers in Africa. LEAP harnesses mobile technology to facilitate health training and education in remote areas through mobile devices. This ‘mHealth’ initiative demonstrates the changing nature of the challenges facing Amref since 1957, and the imaginative ways that Amref is responding. There will be Q&A afterwards, and a Drinks Reception.
