Nuriat Nambogo, MMS, DPPM, BDS, a Research and Grants Manager at the Consortium for Affordable Medical Technologies (CAMTech) Uganda was recognized by CNN Africa for her role in developing MobiCare, the company responsible for the MobiCare app.
Mobicare allows patients to search for and directly interact with local healthcare providers to schedule appointments and ask medical questions. Nambogo developed the app in response to difficulties in accessing medical care. By streamlining contact between patients and providers, the app closes access gaps and helps patients get much needed care.
Nambogo and her team created the app with support from CAMTech Uganda. CAMTech Uganda, supported by the MGH Center for Global Health, is a global network of academic, clinical, corporate, and implementation partners that works to accelerate high-quality affordable medical technology in low- and middle-income countries. The group works closely with our partners at Mbarara Regional Referral Hospital and Mbarara University of Science and Technology.
