During unforeseen emergencies a mobile solution to fasten easy access to medical or humanitarian help is the need of the hour. It can provide quick rescue options even in the case where there is disruption to the communication structure of anywhere a disaster or emergency has taken place. The application users can reach those medical workers who are in nearest proximity to guarantee that proper aid is provided at the precise time. The medical personnel are provided with alerts regarding the current location and existing medical conditions of the victim which include but are not limited to GPS, accelerometer parameters etc., as well as input from the People in Need (PiN). These abilities can be controlled to maximize the amount of help provided to the victim in the quickest possible time. This paper describes the design and development techniques of an m-health application which has been tested for Android platform. Our mobile application will assist in setting up connections to the humanitarian operators who will aid in providing relief to the people in an emergency. The efforts to successfully implement this app are based on the contemporary advancement in advanced wireless technologies.
