Abstract or Description

Health information access by low-literate community health workers is a pressing need of community health programs across the developing world. We present results from a needs assessment we conducted to understand the health information access practices and needs of various types of health workers in Pakistan. We also present a prototype for speech based health information access, as well as discuss our experiences from a pilot study involving its use by community health workers in a rural health center.
