Technology has a great roll in our day to day life and we can take countless advantages from technology in every field of our life. Being a Public Health student I am interested in the better health of people especially in remote areas of Pakistan such as my own village Sandi, Gilgit-Baltistan. Though we don’t have enough of technology in our area, but we do have mobile phone. I believe that mobile phone health care program can be one of the most effective health promoting program in remote areas of not only Pakistan, but also in other parts of the world. Here, one must ask that why mobile phone health care? I believe that mobile phone health care program can be
- Easy and effective way to reach an unreached
- Easily accessible
- Not need specific skills to use mobile phone
- Cost effective
- Time effective
- The most common technology in remote areas
- And the most important thing is that it can be helpful for women in male dominant and in conservative societies to have easy access to health care.
I believe that if we will have mobile health care program in our remote areas of Pakistan it can help a large number of our population as many of our people are living in ruler areas and they don’t have access to proper health care. People can get health services directly from their physician and also health information can be send to people through SMS. Which will update people from time to time regarding their health problems and about new diseases and their prevention.
