Thumbs up Lwala for the innovative idea. Integrating ICT into health programming is the way to go. As the famous Hausa proverb says “if the drumbeat changes, the dance must also change. About 93% of Kenyans own cell phones and if the same system can be used to generate feedback, health and behavior change communication text messages to the community members then this will indeed have a great impact as the entire community will be reached. Just late last year I was in a workshop and was impressed by how people were integrating ICT and agriculture using simple mobile phones to reach the small holder farmers in Africa with extension messaging and market information. Am sure the Kenyan government and other development agencies will want to borrow a leaf from this innovation so please document your experiences and share as widely as possible.
