The mHealth Hub project aims to collect best practices on the use of mHealth in Europe. It is a collaboration between the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) - the United Nations specialised agency for information and communication technologies. The mHealth Hub will work alongside their global 'Be He@lthy, Be Mobile' initiative.
The project is funded by the European Union Horizon 2020 2016-2017 Work Programme, under the action 'Establishing EU mHealth Hub including evidence for the integration of mHealth in the healthcare systems'.
The objectives of the 4-year EU mHealth Hub project are:
To collect and share national experiences of working with mHealth at scale across a variety of disease areas and intervention types;
To help EU Member States introduce mHealth programs and build relationships with regional and global counterparts.
