Highlighted Projects – India
Scale up of CommCare for Community Nutrition Across 8 States in India
Through a partnership with the Government of India and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, a CommCare-based application is being scaled across 8 Indian states to strengthen the monitoring of the service delivery of Anganwadi Centres in the country. The CommCare mobile application is intended to replace the extensive paper registers Anganwadi workers are required to maintain. The app is designed to improve the care Anganwadi workers provide their communities, tracking distribution of immunizations & supplementary food, attendance of children at preschool and the nutrition status of children up to age five. The scale-up is built off a pilot that was deployed to 500 Anganwadi workers in Bihar, India through a project with CARE (see the case study below).
Reducing Maternal & Newborn Deaths – ReMiND (Catholic Relief Services in Uttar Pradesh)
ReMiND is well known as a leading example of best practices for using mobile technology for key maternal and newborn health practices. Catholic Relief Services uses CommCare to help Accredited Social Health Activists (ASHAs) counsel and evaluate women and newborns for pregnancy and postpartum danger signs. ASHAs use CommCare to register and track pregnant patients from pregnancy through the postpartum period, as well as newborns. Over 200 ASHAs use CommCare, reaching over 20,000 women and children.

Scaling CommCare to Deliver Better Community Health to Millions throughout India (USAID & 40+ partners in India)
Thanks to support from Stage 1 & 2 USAID Development Innovations Ventures grants, Dimagi equipped 40 organizations in India with CommCare applications for frontline workers across numerous sectors – including health, finance, education, and agriculture. Dimagi rapidly built capacity of organizations to use mobile solutions, as well as rigorously evaluated the benefit of mobile solutions within the Accredited Social Health Activist (ASHA) program in India.
