Amref Health Africa wins prestigious award for technology innovation

Amref Health Africa has won a coveted Brandon Hall Group Silver Award for excellence in the “Best Use of Mobile Learning” category.

"The high quality of work and commitment to driving business results among our award winners never fails to amaze me,” said Rachel Cooke, Chief Operating Officer of Brandon Hall Group and head of the awards program. “All of these winning programs deliver meaningful business results to their organizations. Winning an Excellence Award is a great honour, but the real winners are the organizations themselves and their customers and clients because of the innovation and customer focus they demonstrate.”

Amref Health Africa's Health Enablement Learning Platform (HELP) provides health training content, approved by the Kenyan Ministry of Health, to community health volunteers. Based on a sophisticated mobile learning methodology, HELP works on all mobile phones (basic to smart), empowering health workers through learning opportunities and enablement tools.

HELP has been developed through a cross-sector collaboration between Amref Health Africa, Accenture, Mezzanine, Safaricom and the M-Pesa Foundation.
Excellence Awards winners will be honoured at Brandon Hall Group’s HCM Excellence Conference January 27-29, 2016, at the PGA National Resort in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. Selected winners also will serve as presenters in the more than 20 breakout sessions during the conference.

"We see the conference as an extension of our awards program that features leading and next practices from some of the best organizations in the world,” Brandon Hall Group CEO Mike Cooke said. “Where else can you learn from, and interact with, leaders of organizations whose HCM programs are validated by an international panel of judges as having a direct impact on the business? We see our conference as a unique opportunity to learn from, and network with, the very best our industry has to offer in the U.S and abroad.”

The entries for the awards were evaluated by a panel of veteran, independent senior industry experts, Brandon Hall Group Sr. Analysts and Executive Leadership based upon the following criteria: fit the need, design of the program, functionality, innovation, and overall measureable benefits.
