'Discovered' frontlineSMS while searching the web reading on e-health. I have downloaded the application and strat playing with it. I am Interested to use it in my work and be able to demonstrate it to colleagues and NGO/Gov project partners as the application could be of great interest to them. The Pacific Islands are facing severe shortages of qualified health workers compounded by profound communicative and geographic barriers yet mobile phones and GSM coverage are ubiquitous.

Hi Ferdinand, 

Yes it is a great tool to have for an NGO ! I joined Concern in 2007 but I have not visited Burundi yet.  Where are you working now ?

Hi Ferdinand,

I am actually in Timor Leste now, but yes we did have success with FrontlineSMS but only after we gave up the attempts to use a phone and found a Huawei modem instead. I don't know of anyone who has had any luck with phones. And FrontlineSMS do not recommend their use any more. We use modems here as well. If you go to WSB talk to Jennifer or Rex about it. I believe Siula left recently. Cheers and good luck. John
