Improving healthcare in earthquake-hit Haiti



 



 
Ten teachers from urban and rural areas in Carrefour, Haiti, a poor district in the Ouest Department of Port-au-Prince, were trained to use the Safe Haiti interface, designed for satellite and smartphones that walks a user through a series of steps to send data as SMS messages via satellite or a ground-based system, if available. This information is then accessed by local and national health systems via an Internet portal.
