24 year old, Californian-based, Josh Nesbit is having quite the impact in Africa. He has been using cheap mobile phones to connect the developing world's poor with remote medical professionals. Nesbit established 'Medic Mobile' which has developed tools that allow health care workers to explain patients' symptoms and transmit medical records using simple text messages. Nesbit hopes to soon be in partnership with a group from UCLA to offer a diagnostic tool that uses a mobile phone's light and camera to remotely analyse a blood sample for malaria and tuberculosis.
