ONE MOM AT A TIME.
women die each day from preventable causes related to pregnancy and childbirth.1
of these women are from developing countries.
1. The World Health Organization
In Mozambique, mothers often live hours from the nearest medical facility or do not have the means to pay for the care they need.
Volunteer health workers (who often lack medical training and expertise) manage the health of large communities. They help record the health conditions of mothers and newborns—on paper.
With too many people to oversee, the health workers lack:
resources to record health information
proper training to advise with health symptoms
time to visit each patient
HealthLink Cooperative makes it easier for health workers to track a mother's pregnancy, birth, and the baby's health with a simple, easy-to-use mobile app.
Electronic Medical Records
Questions guide the health worker to collect the right information. Data can be collected offline and later synced online. This information can be instantly accessed by a doctor when the mother or newborn visits the clinic.
The community health worker receives automated reminders to visit certain patients. Texts can also be sent automatically from the HealthLink app to the patient. These reminders may include: visit the clinic for a 6-week check-up, take prenatal supplements, and much more!
Learning and Development
Now, trainings can be delivered right from the HealthLink app. Community health workers can learn standard health procedures, how to track new diseases, and more.
In Mozambique, at-home births are very common. Most mothers live miles away from a hospital and don't have transportation.
In addition to our mobile e-health platform to track expectant mothers and their children, we provide all the tools for quality healthcare with an at-home birth kit.
An at-home birth kit includes:
Two outfits for the newborn
Gauze and cotton balls
Pre- and post-natal supplements
Antibiotic eye ointment
New bed sheets
