Nursing Officer Pauline Nalutaaya collects and sends the weekís public health data to the district headquarters at Butenga Health Centre IV, in Bukomansimbi District, via mTrac. Health workers are sending weekly health reports using the service, minimizing costs previously related to paper-based reporting.

In September 2013, an innovative government-led initiative known as mTrac is helping to improve the quality of health care and better save children's lives in Uganda.
