MTN Zambia launches Hello Doctor SMS health service

Monday 17 November 2014 | 14:38 CET | News
MTN Zambia announced the launch of a mobile health service called Hello Doctor. The service aims to eliminate distance barriers and improve access to medical services that would often not be consistently available especially in distant rural communities. Users of Hello Doctor can receive expert tips on their mobile phones as well as address health anxieties without necessarily going to a clinic. The SMS-based advice covers various health matters such as maternal health, fitness, nutrition and general health. Each concern has been given a prescribed short keyword which customers send to 570.
