What we needMaternal Assistance Delivery App: Maternal mortality in Somali is one of the highest globally. Sociocultural issues are among factors attributed to the high maternal mortality. CARE intends to use technology and education to address the obstacles on skilled delivery. Poor or lack of education results in women not able to track their clinic visits and delivery date which this project hopes to address. By the time of delivery, almost half of all mothers do not attend a health facility for delivery. The project will aim to use mobile technology to collect beneficiary data/information including telephone number, physical residence, village elder, community health worker and routine health information. The main purpose for this project is to improve access to skilled delivery for women from internally displaced and disaster affected populations.
