Description: This project focused on conducting an evidence map on research investigating the use of mobile technology to support the training of community health workers in LMICs. We set out to understand patterns and gaps in the conducted research with a special emphasis on the type of training supported by mobiles. The evidence map visualised the relations between different types of health conditions and training approaches as well as the amount of research evidence for each configuration.
