Patients have low end phones. Typical End user is a healthcare worker. Shared sensor devices. More open regulatory environments.

CHAI only works through local governments. Give the governments ownership.

High Volume. Big donors or Government pay for service.

Smartphone penetration is growing. Data coverage is growing fast. USSD Voice Protocol and text.

User engagement needs to happen.

Without engagement 1 in 2 infants will be dead by the age of two.
