User-friendly S-Health was piloted for eight months. It makes finding healthcare advice and services easier for old people, who are society’s most vulnerable in emergencies and times of humanitarian crisis. Users receive updates on commonly diagnosed diseases of the elderly and given tips for a healthier diet and caring for old people.

The S-Health app enables users to keep daily track of personal health indicators and set reminders for taking medication and keeping doctor appointments.
