Call a Doctor

There are various mobile phone microfranchises such as Grameen Phone. Here is another example of how the mobile phone can be used to deliver services to rural villages, in this case health services. TeleDoc by Jiva won the World Summit Award for eHealth in Dec. 2003. They provide handheld devices to village health workers who then communicate with doctors using a web application to diagnose and give prescriptions. This is a post about Teledoc that was on Little Devices that Could back in January.
