Part of a joint global initiative by the World Health Organization and the ITU, mAgeing is a programme designed to assist older people in maintaining functional ability and living healthily and independently. Using text messaging, monitoring and evaluation, coordinators look to influence patient behaviour through regular communications — such as encouragement to participate in activities — that lead to better self-managed care and decisions on personal health. Be He@lthy, Be Mobile — A Handbook on How to Implement mAgeing is a guide for health-care practitioners in achieving better outcomes, physically and mentally, in the care of older people.
