There is great potential for mobile-enabled services to reach the underserved, whether in the case of humanitarian crises like Ebola and Zika, or to meet development goals like providing more maternal and child health education.
However, many of these services have not scaled beyond the pilot stage.
We believe that lack of awareness of what mobile channels and platforms can do, as well as the inability to work together effectively to leverage economies of scale, may be the largest roadblocks.
DIAL’s work focuses on:
Building Awareness of Mobile Channel Capabilities and Platforms
Increasing Visibility Among Implementers
Testing Innovative Procurement and Financing Mechanisms
