Stanley Street Treatment and Resources in Massachusetts and the Health and Development Foundation in Moscow are collaborating on a strategic manual for public health campaigns implemented over mobile devices (“mHealth”) that will assist practitioners in addressing health issues facing at-risk women in Russia and the US. A panel of experts will develop the manual and present it at an international roundtable. The manual will include evidence-based data, best practices, lessons learned, and information on mHealth approaches to interventions for at-risk populations.
On December 2, 2013, Stanley Street Treatment and Resources (SSTAR) in the US and the Health and Development Foundation in Russia unveiled a new cross-cultural mobile health campaign at a launch in Fall River, Massachusetts. With support from the US-Russia Social Expertise Exchange (SEE), these organizations are developing mobile-based interventions for at-risk women with histories of substance abuse or HIV.
