Context 
GSMA Mobile for Development brings together our mobile operator members, the wider mobile industry and the development community to drive commercial mobile services for underserved people in emerging markets. We identify opportunities for social, economic and environmental impact and stimulate the development of scalable, life-enhancing mobile services. Mobile is the predominant infrastructure in emerging markets. We believe it is the transformative technology that enables us to put relevant, impactful services into the hands of underserved people. Since the creation of GSMA Mobile for Development we have partnered with 46 mobile operators, rolling out 83 initiatives, impacting tens of millions of people across 45 countries. GSMA Mobile for Development - mHealth The GSMA’s Mobile for Development mHealth programme brings together the mobile industry and health stakeholders to improve health outcomes in emerging markets, with initial focus on Millennium Development Goals 4, 5 and 6 across Africa. There are a number mHealth services in the market today, but few currently demonstrate scale, replication or significant impact. A study conducted by the GSMA, reviewing almost 700 mHealth services, showed that less than 1% are significantly impacting health outcomes. In order to unlock the latent potential of mHealth, the GSMA has identified three key barriers that need to be addressed: fragmentation of service delivery; a lack of scale and sustainability across the full reach of mobile networks; and limited, sustainable public private partnerships that are able to replicate or demonstrate impact to the lives of people most at risk in each country. To address these barriers the GSMA is bringing together its mobile industry members and health stakeholders to collaborate to demonstrate a sustainable business case for investment, support implementation of mHealth services in priority markets; and facilitate partnership opportunities between mobile and health stakeholders. The initial focus of this work is on Africa where mobile and ICT can play a big role in helping to fast track Millennium Development Goals 4, 5 and 6. In June 2012, the GSMA’s Pan-African mHealth Initiative was launched with the aim of creating a sustainable public-private partnership to deliver a reference implementation for scaled mHealth services that can be replicated across disease portfolios and countries.
