Mobile WaCHNEO

We will adapt and scale the existing Mobile WACh - a human-computer hybrid communication system, connects women and newborns to care during the most at risk period, bringing a virtual provider into the home - platform, which has demonstrated efficacy for maternal and child outcomes, to target the problems of neonatal mortality and unmet need for family planning. We will utilize the strengths of our collaborative research partners to evaluate this intervention with plans to scale into electronic medical records (EMR) country-wide. Mobile WACh offers benefits over existing SMS messaging because it provides personalized support.
