افتراضي Non-communicable Diseases, UN Mobile Initiative To Fight

The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and the World Health Organization (WHO) have launched the ‘m-Health’ initiative, which aims to use Mobile technology, in particular text messages and apps, to Fight against Non-communicable diseases (NCDs), such as diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular diseases and chronic respiratory diseases.

United Nations' agencies want to provide guidance through newest and fastest technologies, in an attempt to reduce the big number of people who suffer these kind of problems around the world, and that are one of the leading causes of death in both developed and emerging economies.

Over 36 million people die every year because of NCDs, and 14 million of them are between 30 and 70 years old. M-Health practices can save lives, reduce illness and disability, and healthcare costs, something crucial in many regions.

ITU and WHO will encourage their partners, NGOs and also governments to implement the m-Health imitative, which is being discussed at the ITU Telecom World 2012 in Dubai.

“The widespread availability of Mobile technology, including in many of the least developed countries, is an exceptional opportunity to expand the use of e-health”, said ITU Secretary-General Hamadoun I. Touré.

Messages and apps will inform citizens about risks factors of problems like tobacco use, unhealthy diet, physical inactivity and the harmful use of alcohol. Besides, they will teach them how to address their prevention and treatment.

According to Dr Oleg Chestnov, WHO Assistant Director-General for Non-communicable Diseases and Mental Health, the agency is already using Mobile devices to carry out surveillance of these diseases and their risk factors. “The Global Adult Tobacco Surveillance system has used Mobile phones to capture data on tobacco use in 17 countries”, he explained.

The project will initially run for a four-year period and focus on prevention, treatment and enforcement of NCDs and will work at both global and national level. Partners will share knowledge and technical expertise to develop standard procedures, and governments will work closely with the Initiative to accelerate the process.
