Problem or Need: 

Health workers in low-resource environments have little or no access to clinical content, guidelines, protocols, or research. GUIDE allows very large documents (such as Ministry of Health treatment guidelines) to be formatted for easy use on the small screen of a mobile device. Importantly, GUIDE preserves the format of graphic elements such as tables, charts, graphs, and illustrations. Resident on the device, these documents are always available for access even if there is no connection to the web.
