Each year at least 1.16 million newborns die in sub-Saharan Africa within the first 28 days of life yet more than two thirds of these infants could be saved with low cost, low tech action. With over 80% of postnatal care happening outside the hospital settings, hospitals lack an efficient and convenient way to followup mothers so as to timely identify life threatening complication in between postnatal visits.
Through simple mobile applications like USSD and SMS the team at Teheca is educating mothers about of the importance of postnatal care and carrying out remote followup and diagnosis through chat and sms to allow for timely identification of complications.
We send free sms reminders to mothers about postnatal days and creating accessibility to postnatal care services through in home care and group sessions.
