SMS is a method for sending text messages between mobile devices. The common use of text messaging is person-to-person, from one mobile phone to another (or multiple) mobile phone(s). However, it is also possible to send bulk messages to a number of recipients using an SMS software application. The focus of this toolkit is on the implementation considerations for using and evaluating text messaging as a health care intervention, in contrast to personal text messaging applications.
