Malik M. Saad Missen, Tareef Ali Khan, Hina Asmat, Nadeem Salamat and Nadeem Akhtar

In this paper, we propose a short text messaging(SMS) based health-care system ideal for rural areas where one cannot find proper health-care because of scarcity of doctors and other health-care resources. This system especially focuses on issue of self-medication mostly prevailing in rural areas. We discuss our system by taking Pakistan as our case study. In addition to this, we also discuss the social network to be formed as a result of this system. We discuss how the data obtained from this system can be adapted to form a social network. We also discover how this social network can be used to improve health-care system.

Keywords: Short text messaging, mobile health-care, social networking, rural health
