During the 2014 West Africa Ebola outbreak, health workers like Wislyne didn’t have the information they needed to make decisions. But, she, along with many others, continued to fight. “Being a nurse is like being a soldier. You cannot take your uniform off when there is battle…So I went on the frontline because I wanted to save lives,” she remembers. In response to these challenges, USAID and UNICEF teamed up to create mHero, a communication service used by the Government of Liberia to connect frontline health workers and central health officials to each other. This allows them to quickly share information via text message, using the basic mobile phones that most health workers already have.
