Sierra Leone's Ministry of Health and Sanitation expressed interest in mHero in November 2014, calling for support for the two-way communication platform to help strengthen their health systems. Through the USAID Ebola Grand Challenge, IntraHealth began supporting the ministry in September 2015, working in collaboration with other local partners, including the World Health Organization, to scale iHRIS. Interoperability between iHRIS and RapidPro was established in November 2015, and the platform was successfully demonstrated to ministry staff who were eager to learn of the platform’s utility. The ministry planned to have iHRIS updated by December 2015 and a pilot for mHero is tentatively planned for early 2016. IntraHealth has begun the process of creating a facility registry, and has also received a request to make iHRIS interoperable with DHIS2, further enhancing the mHero platform.
