A Ministry of Health initiative
for real-time monitoring of disease prevalence, medicine stock-outs and health service delivery complaints
mTrac is a government led initiative to digitize the transfer of Health Management Information System (HMIS) data via mobile phones. The initial focus of mTrac is to speed up the transfer of HMIS Weekly Surveillance Reports (covering disease outbreaks and medicines), provide a mechanism for community members to report on service delivery challenges, and empower District Health Teams by providing timely information for action.
