Innovation Description

Shirati Hospital and its partners Bruyère Research Institute, AMREF, and CPAR are increasing maternal and child survival in Tanzania by packaging key ANC tools into an integrated programme model. Components of the innovative integrated package include training traditional birth attendants and dispensary nurses with knowledge and skills to provide safe pregnancy education to pregnant women, and distributing Clean Delivery Kits that include with misoprostol. The innovative combined programme further improves the role of these health workers by introducing Medic Mobile’s mobile health (mHealth) platform that creates a scalable system that: (1) improves registrations and collects data about the delivery experiences of expectant mothers; (2) monitors and coordinates the treatments provided to women and the outcomes of these treatments while ensuring that all health workers have sufficient supplies; and (3) provides a management and analysis system generating evidence-based data for information and results tracking.
