mHealth for maternal health: bridging the gaps

This opening session began with a welcome address from Ana Langer and a review of the agenda, objectives, and goals of the meeting by Christopher Bailey. Kathleen Hill gave an illustrative case presentation of how eHealth interventions and integration could have helped identify a pregnant woman's experience with eclampsia, possibly averting a newborn's death. Alain Labrique gave an overview based on a pre-meeting survey of participants, asking what are the major barriers and possible interventions for Universal Access for maternal health. Barriers were grouped into three cadres: the client, the provider, and the system. Solutions were also discussed, including the challenges to overcoming those barriers. Q&A and discussion from participants followed.
