Featured Case Study

Featured Blog: Amakomaya

Amakomaya is a free web and mobile application that aims to fill gaps in maternal and neonatal healthcare access in Nepal.

Administered by a diverse team of medical, sociological, financial, and public health professionals, the application delivers medical information via pre-recorded video content. The videos explain the stages of pregnancy, inform mothers what to expect, provide medical information about warning signs of health problems, and assist women in maintaining the wellbeing of themselves and their babies.

The application contains platforms for pregnant women as well as their healthcare providers. Women can enter information about their health and receive advice and reminders for care. The interface also engages women's support networks, offering outreach to husbands and mothers-in-law about best practices for care during pregnancy.

Upcoming Events

1 World Connected will participate in the Global Digital Health Forum 2020, from December 7-9.
