This resource provides an in-depth look at three programs that illustrate the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) and new media – specifically using mobile technologies – as part of an integrated strategy to increase demand for and use of reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health (RMNCH) commodities and services.
The three case studies are:
- Mobile Alliance for Maternal Action (MAMA), which uses technology to improve health and nutrition outcomes among pregnant women and new mothers and their infants in Bangladesh and South Africa.
- Ananya, which is a multiplatform program designed to reduce maternal and infant mortality in Bihar, India.
- Mobile Technology for Community Health (MOTECH), which aims to increase the quantity and quality of prenatal and neonatal care in rural Ghana.
