The five-year Mobile Solutions Technical Assistance and Research (mSTAR) award is a broad, flexible, and responsive program designed to foster the rapid adoption and scale-up of mobile money, mobile access, and mobile data, in developing countries. Managed by FHI 360 and implemented together with a consortium of over 20 leading economic development and ICT4D organizations, mSTAR provides technical assistance to USAID and its implementing partners; funding to accelerate promising mobile solutions; strategic partnerships to optimize sustainability; and an action-oriented research and knowledge management agenda.

In the second quarter of mSTAR’s Year 2, project staff partnered with USAID’s Mobile Solutions Unit and Missions in Bangladesh, Mozambique and the Regional Development Mission for Asia (RDMA) to accelerate the adoption of mobile solutions and build the capacity of USAID staff and implementing partners to develop and utilize mobile technologies.
