Improving Rural Health in Guatemala with CommCare

Project Overview

Alta Verapaz is a rural region of Guatemala with one of the highest burdens of maternal mortality in the world. With an indigenous population of nearly 1 million people, 78% of Alta Verapaz lives below the poverty line and has a severe lack of formal health services. To improve maternal care in Alta Verapaz, as well as address extremely high rates of malnutrition and malaria, TulaSalud adopted CommCare in 2012 to enhance their community mobile health (mHealth) program.
