Jhpiego and its partners (Johns Hopkins University Center for Bioengineering Innovation and Design and Laerdal Global Health) propose to rapidly develop and conduct initial field-testing for an "E-Partogram", an affordable, easy-to-use, handheld electronic decision-making tool for preventing or managing complications during labor. The E-partogram could positively transform safe childbirth by enabling front-line providers to more rapidly assess and respond to labor complications and receive crucial guidance to save the lives of women and newborns.
