Open Health Networks (OHN) is a system that allows individuals to send coded text messages which report the lack of medication, equipment and other concerns. The goal is to increase knowledge of basic, individual health care rights and citizen empowerment and to open up the communication channels between indigenous communities, CEGSS (Centro de Estudios para la Equidad y Gobernanza en los Sistemas de Salud) and the government.

OHN was developed for CEGSS in Guatemala City as part of a studio class and student fellowships at Parsons School of Design, and in partnership with Open Society Foundations.
