Amidst growing concern over the spread of the Dengue virus in Peshawar, we got to work....and built the KP Health Portal app in under 24 hours!
Citizens can now call 1700 and access the Dengue Health Helpline 24 hours a day. The Health Portal App is being used by Health department
and will be available to download on Google Play Store in the coming days.
Health workers can also login to the app to report updates on treatment activities, and when they recognize symptoms of infectious diseases in communities across the province.
The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Health Department will mobilize staff and resources in response to citizen concerns and use the data collected to identify public health trends and monitor health worker performance.
The quick development of the application is also a testament to how technology can be used to improve all types of government service delivery and how government departments can collaborate.
