Evaluating the potential of wearable technologies to support health system strengthening in low- and middle-income countries

 
 
The Project

Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) account for the majority of preventable deaths worldwide, and more than 85% of these deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries, where capacities of local health systems are often inadequate to address this problem.

 

Wearable health monitors such as smartwatches are a promising technological innovation which could be used by health authorities in these countries to control and monitor risk factors for non-communicable diseases.

 

BIOS is research project involving a collaboration between the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and the National Institute of Public Health in Cambodia, which aims to assess this potential.
