Maternal Health Task Force
16 January 2013 | Global Maternal Health Conference 2013, Arusha, Tanzania
This video starts after Lund's presentation and partially into the Q&A session. The next presentation was by Balogun who used SMS messages to disseminate health messages to pregnant mothers in Nigeria. With this they studied the willingness of these women to receive these messages and they received positive feedback regarding interest. Aribot discussed the use of mobile phones for integrated health services in Guinea. Results included a significant uptick in the number of referrals, with challenges including lost phones and interrupted service. Chang and associates rounded out the session with a presentation on their work in Uganda using Photovoice to understand perceptions and the use of recorded educational lessons through the use of the phone to pregnant women and their male partners.
