Yaa commented on Staffing for pharmacies in Remote Areas.

Elvin, good work done. You mentioned that you wanted to improve access to quality healthcare in rural or unserved areas through mobile technology. Or simply put, access to pharmacist in the provision of healthcare in rural areas. I guess one of your suggestions included video call or taking pictures of prescriptions and sending them via that app. But my challenge is with problem of network in most rural areas especially in Ghana. For example from where i work currently, some of the villages in my district only get network reception when mobile phones are placed at a particular place or corner of a room or better still on top of a mountain or tree. How can this app be used at such places for the people there to have access to the pharmacist?
