Abstract: Background: There has been a tremendous surge in stroke prevalence in sub-Saharan Africa.Hypertension(HTN),the most potent,modifiable risk factor for stroke,is a particular challenge in sub-Saharan Africa.Culturally sensitive,efficacious HTN control programs that are timely and sustainable are needed,especially amongstrokesurvivors.Mobile health technology andtask-shiftingofferpromisingapproachestoaddressthis need. Methods: Using a concurrent triangulation design,we collected data from stroke survivors,caregivers,community leaders, clinicians and hospital personnel to explore the barriers,facilitators and perceptions toward mHealth related to HTN management among post stroke survivors in Ghana. Exploration included perceptions of a nurse-led navigational model to facilitate care delivery and willingness of stroke survivors and care givers to use mobile health technology.
