SMS Gate for service delivery

This follows after DIRD has developed a partnership under the public private partnership (PPP) arrangement with UNICEF Papua New Guinea to utilize new mobile technology called RapidPro.

RapidPro is UNICEF’s mobile based system for real- time data collection for improved monitoring of service delivery. It is a communication engine to power connections among decision makers, frontline workers and government partners.
