Mobilium Global announced the launch of its Smart Health application in seven African countries (Nigeria, Kenya, South Africa, Angola, Tanzania, Ghana, and Senegal) in March 2014. The app has received widespread support and endorsement, predominantly from The Global Fund to Fight Aids, Tuberculosis and Malaria; Senegalese American R&B and hip-hop artist Akon; and Nigerian singer, songwriter and producer 2face Idibia. WLSA is also a supporting partner of Mobilium Global’s Smart Health app.
Mobilium Global CEO Ralph Simon states that their goal “is to provide for mobile users in Africa a free, all-access health resource platform that informs as well as encourages safe behavioral practices that in turn will help reduce the transmission and infection rates of AIDS, Malaria and TB.” Future releases will also provide information about nutrition and prenatal/ postnatal mother and newborn care. The Smart Health app is free to download for African mobile subscribers and it will be factory embedded on all new Samsung smartphones and tablets distributed in Africa through a distribution partnership with Samsung Africa.
