This toolkit provides information about currently available mobile messaging technology solutions, as well as things to consider when selecting a vendor and deploying a mobile health, or mHealth, campaign. It is meant to be used with other resources on project design, content development, and behavioral change communications, including Planning an Information Systems Project: A Toolkit for Public Health Managers.

The toolkit is designed for mHealth project implementers looking to deploy mobile messaging campaigns to encourage healthy participant behaviors in low- and middle-income countries. Whether a project is in the early design phase or preparing for implementation, this toolkit will help project implementers navigate through critical questions ensuring that the vendor of choice matches the goals and needs of the pilot project as well as the project at scale.
