© 2020 Owner/Author. The rapid development of mHealth technologies has the potential to revolutionize many health disciplines, especially in the context of marginalised groups. However, so far health outcomes have not stood up to the high expectations. Moreover, interdisciplinary design and evaluation frameworks are missing. In this workshop, we want to critically reflect on effective and ineffective mHealth interventions with an interdisciplinary lens, bringing together researchers from HCI, public health and related disciplines. To address issues of health equity, we put our focus on marginalised groups, e.g. low-income populations from rural areas, developing countries or with low digital health literacy. Our central outcome will be a collection of concepts for an integrated, multi-disciplinary development and evaluation framework.
