mHMtaani: Mobile Health for Our Communities in Kenya
With support from USAID, under the APHIAplus Nairobi-Coast project, Pathfinder launched mHMtaani or “Mobile health for our communities.” The project aims to promote healthier communities by using mobile technology to monitor and track the health of pregnant mothers, as well as OVC in Kilifi County in Coast province, Kenya. mHMtaani works to improve service delivery for children and adults at the community level using CommCare, a recognized mHealth platform provided by Dimagi.
This issue of Pathways explores Pathfinder's ongoing commitment to addressing the urgent needs of pregnant women and how we are improving their chances for a safe delivery—from India, to Nigeria, to Pakistan.
We believe change starts with expertly trained providers and pharmacies that never run out of supplies. It starts with open conversations among women, young people, men, religious leaders, mothers-in-law, policymakers, and others, joining to discuss their beliefs and remove barriers to their health and well-being. Our 2014 Annual Report shows a few highlights of how Pathfinder has served as a catalyst for change over the past year.
