Abstract: This paper looks into an overview of the challenges that are crippling the healthcare domain which provide healthcare services to the resource constrained areas in developing nations. It also looks into how mobile devices can be used to provide service delivery within the healthcare sector by providing different mobile health (m-health) solutions. The authors also look into various frameworks that have been proposed by other authors in implementing m-health applications. Although these frameworks are helpful, they consider the healthcare context within developing nations to be unique and therefore explore how m-health solutions can effectively be delivered within the resource constrained areas. They propose that these m-health services be deployed from the primary healthcare levels in order to improve the delivery of services within various communities. They further provide the issues that the mhealth service providers should take into account when providing m-health solutions to the resource constrained areas.
