Since most maternal deaths and many term still-births are the result of delays in accessing skilled obstetric care, we strengthen and enable existing systems to reduce delays and encourage patients to access skilled care sooner by improved communication over a cellular network and using mobile money reimbursements. Our innovative strategy requires no new infrastructure, just feature-phones, and an automated, interactive voice platform.
Maternal and Neonatal mortality in Africa is one of the highest in the world. One of the issues in rural Africa is that in case of an emergency, when a woman is in need to get to a Hospital immediately , her family can't afford to pay for transportation. In a lot of these cases, the woman and her unborn baby will die either at her home or in a health center.
This program is called: LifeRide because by compensating drivers and providing an automated communication system, we aim to save lives.
