2cp10.17 mhealth alliance:

"The use of technology to improve access to health is dear to me, especially in the farthest reaches of the developing world, where it is needed most," said Professor Yunus. "I look forward to working closely with the other members of the mHealth Alliance Partnership Board. Together we can make real the promise of mHealth: leveraging the power of the world's mobile networks and devices to make better health available to people everywhere."

From Bangladesh, where women in rural villages use mobile phones to call health specialists and doctors in health clinics provided by the government when their children are sick, to Tanzania, where health workers send SMS messages to ensure proper stocks of anti-malarial drugs, mHealth is beginning to change the way the world provides medical treatment and access to healthcare.

The announcement is made just prior to one of the mHealth Alliance's marquee initiatives - the 2010 mHealth Summit. The Summit, a partnership of the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health (FNIH), the National Institutes of Health, and the mHealth Alliance, is the leading conference advancing cross-sector collaboration in the use of wireless technology to improve health outcomes. About 2,000 leaders from around the world are expected to attend the 2010 mHealth Summit, to be held November 8-10 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC.

"Professor Yunus stands for radically new thinking in economics and banking. He has recognized the potential of the poorest of this world who manage to make a decent living on the basis of a small starting credit, a lot of creativity and the sun as the source of energy. This is more than exemplary," explains Dr. Ing. h. c. Frank Asbeck, Chairman and CEO of SolarWorld AG.

Professor Yunus will join a distinguished group of recipients of SolarWorld Einstein Award including Dr. Rupert Neudeck (founder of the so-called Green Helmets), Prof. Antonio Luque-Lopez (Spanish photovoltaic pioneer), Prof. Martin Green (developer of the most efficient mono-crystalline solar cell), Prof. Adolf Goetzberger (founder of the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems), Prof. Dr. Klaus Topfer (former German environment minister and former executive director of the United Nations Environment Program) and Dr. Hermann Scheer (one of the spiritual fathers of the German law on renewable energy sources).
