Two of Ghana’s software products have been selected as winners of the 2013 World Summit Awards, a UN-based initiative to promote the world's best e-contents.

Nandi Mobile, a technology start-up, won the e-Business and Commerce category with its Infoline product, which is a mobile and web service that connects consumers and businesses in emerging markets.

Mobile Technology for Community Health in Ghana (MoTeCH), a technology-driven health initiative that is part of service delivery for maternal health at antenatal care won in the e-Health and Environment category with the Mobile-Midwife application and the Nurse application.

Mobile-Midwife targets pregnant women with educational and actionable messages tailored to suit their stages in pregnancy. The Nurse Application can be likened to a simplified paper register to collect clinical information. This enables easy identification of both mothers and infants and saves time collating information to generate monthly reports, alerts and reminders for clients who need care.
