Why Mobile health messages? What's the problem?

The World Health Organization has revealed that Noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) kill 38 million people each year. Furthermore, almost three quarters of NCD deaths( 28 million) occur in low and middle-income countries.
“Noncommunicable diseases (NCDs), also known as chronic diseases, are not passed from person to person. They are of long duration and generally slow progression. The 4 main types of noncommunicable diseases are cardiovascular diseases (like hypertension, heart attacks and stroke), cancers, chronic respiratory diseases (such as chronic obstructed pulmonary disease and asthma) and diabetes.
Children, adults and the elderly are all vulnerable to the risk factors that contribute to noncommunicable diseases whether from unhealthy diets, physical inactivity, exposure to tobacco smoke or the effects of the harmful use of alcohol.
These diseases are driven by forces that include ageing, rapid unplanned urbanization and the globalization of unhealthy  lifestyles For example, unhealthy diets may show up in individuals as raised blood pressure, increased blood glucose, elevated blood lipids and obesity. These are called ‘intermediate risk factors’ which can lead to cardiovascular diseases, a NCD.
A  positive change in diet, lifestyle and an increase in physical activity can reverse  and prevent cardiovascular diseases like hypertension, heart attack and stroke.”

Our solution-M health messages

The use of mobile phones in Cameroon and the world is on the rise and it is an opportunity to take advantage of technology to improve on the health of our country and society. It is not easy to gather people together in a group to give carry out health promotion. This is because people are very busy with their activities of daily living and so there is the need for another strategy to pass across health messages without disrupting the activities of daily living of individuals. Furthermore, urban dwellers can use the Internet to have access to health education messages while those in rural communities may not have access to the Internet and may have very limited sources of information, but they do have mobile phones to receive messages
If health messages are sent directly to mobile phones, it is guaranteed that the users of mobile phones will read the message and the goal of health education will be achieved.
