Merck adds to African m-health
Thursday, September 11, 2014
Merck, a German-based pharmaceutical company, has added to a growing amount of mobile-health (m-health) programmes across Africa, channelling efforts to boost SMS-based support systems to help diabetic patients manage their condition.
The “Capacity Advancement Programme” also aims to introduce an e-learning component to its clinical diabetes management course for medical and pharmacy students across the continent. Those based in Namibia, Ghana, Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania will be the first to receive the solution, while other countries are set to follow.
