What is mHero?
mHero is a two-way, mobile phone-based communication system that connects ministries of health and health workers. mHero brings together existing health information systems with locally popular communication platforms to facilitate the exchange of important health information. IntraHealth International and UNICEF created mHero in August 2014 to support health-sector communication during the Ebola outbreak in Liberia. Today, mHero is being deployed as a key tool for coordinating COVID-19 response in several countries.
