Using mHealth to Improve Antenatal, Natal, & Post-Natal Care in India

Project Overview

Lata Medical Research Foundation (LMRF) partnered with Dimagi to assess CommCare’s feasibility for monitoring antenatal, natal and postnatal care and infant nutrition in rural India. After an initial successful study, LMRF adopted CommCare in 2013 to help frontline workers track pregnant women, and familiarize them, as well as their families, with public health programs to improve their health seeking behavior, and consequently, maternal and child health outcomes.
