Mobilium Smart Health app launched

Tuesday, November 5, 2013

Samsung and Mobilium Global have joined forces to distribute the Mobilium Smart Health app – a “Made For Africa” mobile health and wellness, smart device application.

With the direct support and guidance of The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and malaria, the app enables consumers to not only educate themselves around these diseases, but to identify symptoms, high risk areas as well as precautionary measures when travelling into those areas in Africa.

The app is focused on providing an accurate baseline information resource on HIV/AIDS, TB and malaria as well as invaluable knowledge on a number of ancillary topics such as injection safety.

The app is available as a free download to African mobile subscribers/consumers and is aimed at enhancing the health, health maintenance, health behaviours and ultimately the future health of individuals and their communities across the continent. It will also be factory embedded on all new Samsung smartphones and tablet devices distributed in Africa going forward.

Future releases will include information on nutrition and Prenatal/Postnatal mother and new born care. The application also incorporates a mobile web based symptom checker – the Isabel Symptom Checker app, which is listed in the NHS Choices Health Apps Library of safe and trusted apps (reviewed by the NHS).
