The AIDS.gov blog recaps some of the major themes of the mHealth Summit: Connecting the Mobile Health Ecosystem, which was held at the beginning of December in Washington, D.C. Some of the highlighted themes include evidence that wireless technology is effective in health programs; "[p]olicy, infrastructure, and ownership are vital"; and "[h]ealth literacy can make or break any intervention." Noting "the Summit has grown from 800 attendees to thousands" in four years, the blog adds that more information about the meeting is available online at mhealthsummit.org (12/18).
