This is an introductory video to the inSCALE project in Uganda, which was created to  make the work of community health workers (CHWs) easier.  Using cell phones, they share the data they've collected at the end of the week, speak regularly to their supervisors and colleagues, and use innovative app-based tools to improve their performance.  

The CHWs receive weekly and monthly feedback on their phones, as well as thanks for their hard work and reminders about how important their work is.  The workers reported that the feedback is invaluable.
