Amazing research. Amazing Help

[*Note from HIFA2015 moderator (Neil PW): Here is a brief description of MOTECH, from their website:

‘Grameen Foundation has launched an initiative to determine how best to use mobile phones to increase the quantity and quality of pre- and post-natal care in rural Ghana. Funded by a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Mobile Technology for Community Health (MOTECH) initiative is a collaboration with Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health and the Ghana Health Service. The two-and-a-half-year project offers a suite of services delivered over basic mobile phones that provides relevant health information to pregnant women and encourages them to seek pre-natal care from local facilities. After the birth, the system addresses common questions about newborn care. Simultaneously, the MOTECH system helps community health workers identify women and newborns in their area who need healthcare services and automates the process of tracking patients who have received care.’
