Behavior Change Communication & mHealth

Behavior Change Communication & mHealth

Globally, the explosion of mobile phone technology presents great potential for information dissemination and behavior change. In Bangladesh, a rapidly evolving landscape of technology & social media is poised to bring about societal change at unprecedented rates, in the context of a society with persistent & strong traditional values. Proliferation of mobile technology has also increased accessibility of geographically isolated populations. TRAction seeks to exploit these opportunities and is working to generate evidence on the effectiveness of mobile technology as a medium to disseminate health messages in the areas of maternal and adolescent health.
