"Building Mobile Communications Tools to Bring Health Care to Underserved Communities"

The Skoll Foundation presents the Skoll Awards for Social Entrepreneurship each year to a select few social entrepreneurs whose proven innovations have demonstrated impact on some of the world's most pressing problems. The Skoll Award recognizes organizations with the potential to not only be individually successful, but also to catalyze large-scale, system-level change.

Medic Mobile (San Francisco, USA)
Social entrepreneur: Josh Nesbit

One billion people will never see a health professional in their lives. Yet 95 percent of the world's population has access to a mobile signal. Josh Nesbit's Medic Mobile was created to improve health in underserved and disconnected communities using communication tools. Medic Mobile builds mobile applications for community health workers, caregivers, and patients to increase life-saving health care coverage. Across 20 countries, its tools support 8,000 frontline health workers and benefit approximately six million people with plans to double these numbers annually for a total of 200,000 health workers serving 100 million people by 2018.
