Mobile-messaging provider Clickatell says it will continue to work with InSTEDD (Innovative Support to Emergencies, Diseases and Disasters) to leverage wireless communication tools to help “solve the world’s greatest humanitarian challenges,” adding, “When it absolutely has to be there, regardless of device, time of day, type of network, people turn to SMS. This is why InSTEDD selected text messaging as their foundation for critical communication.” InSTEDD leverages Clickatell’s short code messaging service to enable health and humanitarian organizations in developing countries to respond to events affecting their health and safety, such as disease outbreaks and natural disasters. The non-profit also advises organizations such as the United Nations, the World Health Organization and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control on the strategic implementation of health information systems and collaboration technology ventures.
