Working with pregnant women in under-served areas
Antenatal Care (ANC) is key in reducing Maternal and Newborn deaths. In Cameroon, 20% of pregnant women NEVER do an ANC visit and only 35% do an ANC visit during the critical first trimester. We sensitize pregnant women in low income areas on why they should do their ANC and provide follow up.
Works even on feature(dumb) phones
Sadly, over 7000 women still die per year in Cameroon from pregnancy related complications which can be prevented by a simple educative SMS. We notify subscribe women by SMS on when they should do their ANCs and tell them why. Subscription to our SMS solution is free and be done on the homepage.
Our targets are children less than 5 years
Over 4000 babies die per year in Cameroon from vaccine-preventable diseases. We track the vaccination program of children less than 5 years, reminding their guardians through SMS on when and where to take their children for the next vaccine.
Using mobile to propagate education campaigns
Many families are uncomfortable discussing sexual health education with their children. We propagate a mobile sensitization campaign among teens with content customized for the younger generation.
Family planning education is key in solving the problem of unwanted pregnancy
The first step in fighting Maternal mortality is preventing unwanted pregnancy. We use mobile technology to educate families on modern family planning and contraception techniques.
Reaching out to more communities, One Village at a time.
