HHS Text4Health Projects #mHealth

The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) has a number of "Text4Health" projects that are health text messaging programs. Some of those programs include:

Text4Baby: a public-private partnership that provides pregnant women and new mothers with free health text messages.

TXT4Tots: The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) is collaborating with the American Academy of Pediatrics to develop a text message library on nutrition and physical activity, based on the Bright Futures Guidelines for Health Supervision of Infants, Children, and Adolescents.

SmokeFreeTXT: The National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) Tobacco Control Research Branch (TCRB) has designed SmokeFreeTXT as a free mobile smoking cessation service designed for teens and young adults across the United States.

QuitNowTXT: The National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) Tobacco Control Research Branch (TCRB) has developed an interactive text messaging library and delivery algorithm for adults in the United States who wish to quit smoking.

SmokeFreeMoms: SmokeFreeMoms is a cross-HHS coordinated pilot project focused on providing pregnant women who wish to quit smoking with personalized, interactive and evidence-based health text messages.

Health Alerts On-the-Go: CDC's health information is now available on your mobile device.
