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.
