Android apps for protecting Pregnant mother and infant babies
Project start date : 09/03/2012
Beneficiary country : Nepal
About the project
Through the use of the Internet, pregnant women can register on demand. Through the use of a username and password, pregnant women can securely obtain information about pregnancy through audio, text and video content. This content is available on mobile phones. Amakomaya.com aims to inform and empower low-income pregnant women about pregnancy and childbirth and care during pregnancy, with a focus on maternal, newborn and child health.
Amakomaya addresses the health care scenario of pregnant women in rural settings by introducing videos of the changes of the foetus inside the body through an android application.
Rural women rarely have access or willingness to go for health check ups during their pregnancy. This application helps them understand the changes they are going to experience and the necessary care needed while emphasizing the need for routine doctor consult.
