At the Mobile World Congress underway in Barcelona today, the UN Foundation and Vodafone Foundation announced a new initiative to study how mobile health technologies may be harnessed to improve health care in Brazil’s indigenous communities.

Project partners include the Pan American Health Organization and the Brazilian Ministry of Health. From the news release. (Disclosure).
