Dimagi partners with CORE Group and others to offer small grants for organizations to try CommCare

March 20, 2012

Dimagi has partnered with CORE group, Grameen Foundation, Maternal Concept Lab, and the World Health Organization to offer 5 small grants to organizations to test out CommCare and build local capacity in mHealth.

With generous funding from the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation through a grant from the Innovation Working Group to support maternal, newborn, and child mobile health programs, a new grant opportunity is available. Dimagi and CORE Group are pleased to announce a learning collaborative designed to help organizations to develop, implement, and evaluate the CommCare mHealth tool in low or middle income countries. This activity will not only give organizations a chance to test out a specific tool within the context of a specific project or program—but will also build mhealth capacity in a larger sense.

The objectives of this RFA are to:

  • Build capacity for organizations to implement mHealth solutions for community health workers (CHWs).
  • Create and evaluate several open source mHealth applications and content focused on community health programming.
  • Share lessons and document best practices through a learning collaborative of several organizations going through this process together.
Five winners will receive: free remote technical support from Dimagi, CORE Group, Grameen Foundation, Maternal Concept Lab, and the World Health Organization for one year, as well as a startup package including 10 phones and up to $500 USD for project expenses to support airtime, chargers, local travel, and other implementation needs.
