The guide, which just came out, highlights two Dimagi projects in Afghanistan with World Vision and in India with Catholic Relief Services, in addition to several other case studies.

The guide highlights numerous areas where mHealth is being used to support newborn health, including through referral and tracking of mothers and infants, decision support for community health workers, community health worker supervision, scheduling and tracking postpartum and postnatal visits, and teaching and counseling for mothers and families.
