One used or broken phone can fund 10 or more new phones for Community Health Workers with Medic Mobile technology which allows them to register every pregnancy, track disease outbreaks faster, keep stock of medicines, and communicate about emergencies. Medic Mobile is used in over 20 countries with 39 partners. Over 9,000 Health Workers currently use this technology. They register every infant and send reminder messages about immunizations and keeping appointments. For some people, it's a 100-mile journey to get to a hospital. Workers use Medic Mobile to report symptoms to the nearest clinic, receive advice about treatment and emergency referrals, and provide information about the diseases that burden their community.
We are students taking responsibility for the technology that plays such an important part of our lives and using it to help bring medical care to all parts of the world. By recycling our old phones, we bring the internet and a world of medical care to a child, a pregnant woman, a sick elder, and others in need. It's literally life saving!
Cell phones contain metals including copper and plastics. Recycling mobile phones prevents air and water pollution and saves these resources reducing the number of greenhouse gas emissions which take place during the manufacturing of new phones.
You can help. Dig out your old phones, recycle them. Bring them to one of our drop spots or contact us for a pickup! Become a Team Leader and collect phones in your community!
