The e-AKaP Project trains and equips frontline community health workers in the Philippines with mobile applications and tablets to help monitor and communicate information to expectant mothers. e-AKaP is a Tagalog acronym that stands for “e-Action for Universal Health Coverage.” e-AKaP addresses many of the daily challenges the community health workers face.
The mobile application expedites the development of individual household profiles, formulates individualized health use plans for household members, delivers targeted multimedia health messages, and helps workers manage follow up and tracking of household members’ progress with health use plans. The e-AKaP Project also facilitates electronic reporting on the health status of households to the City Health Office, healthcare facilities, and national government offices.
