re: Mobile Health Apps Neglect Poor Countries
It makes sense that there arenG«÷t many apps for diseases or
chronic conditions most prevalent in poor or underdeveloped countries. In those
countries, you wouldnG«÷t find anywhere near the percentage of the population
found in first world countries that have smartphones, tablets or any other
gadget able to use mobile health apps. The mobile health app industry remains
an industry and therefore they wouldnG«÷t develop apps for markets in which they wouldnG«÷t
be used.
