Mobile phone based risk assessment in India.
“In Gujarat, thousands of rural health workers, trained by the National Rural Health Mission (NRHM), go door-to-door collecting information on pregnant women, infants and sends it using their mobile phone to State Rural Health Mission (SRHM), the government body, which collates the data into a centralised repository. This data is then used to alert rural health workers – through SMS – to make sure they reach out to the pregnant women and mothers regarding immunisation dates or medicines to be taken.”
There are many very inspiring stories …
The role and the ability of young women in South Asian cultures have been hugely underestimated, and it is about time we take a good look at how they are changing not only their own lives but also other around them. Like the other women in her group, Archana is a leader. By letting every pregnant woman in her village know her story, she is empowering them with knowledge and inspiring them to re-imagine what is possible. Through the group and through her example she is saving and changing lives. I feel like I’ve seen the future, and she is called Archana.
