Every year over 5500  women in Kenya die due pregnancy related complications. I n 2012 alone over 100,000 children  died before their 5TH birthday. I n the same year there were 100,000 new HIV infections among children, 62% who didn't access ARV drugs. Those statistics are un acceptable seeing that we have the capacity to reduce the number of deaths through high quality low cost interventions. Those interventions include full immunization of children, attending clinics during and after pregnancy, delivering your baby in a health facility, exclusive breastfeeding of  infants below 6 months, washing of hands, knowledge of everyone HIV status and adhering to the treatment of all ailments. Those simple M- Health guides to be given over SMS by Mobile for good can reduce the death toll by 90%. The MAMA  product  we are popularizing has been prepared by joint collaboration of experts from :

1. Johnson & Johnson

2. USAID

3. UN Foundation

4. M- HEALTH Alliance

5.Baby Centre

Mobile for good  (a  social enterprise) is a baby Centre license no. REF 00D306S450040

The MAMA  adaptable messages cover pregnancy , infancy and ages 1-3 . Those core messages cover a broad range of health topics found to impact maternal, neo natal and child survival, including nutrition, ante natal care , cord care, breastfeeding, immunizations and use of oral dehydration solution and zinc.

Those messages are provided in SMS format to be sent 3 times per week and an audio script to be sent once  per week. They cover week 5-42  of pregnancy and week 0- 52 of baby's life( Pregnancy /baby messages) and years 1-3 ( child messages).

THE FUNDS WE SEEK IS TO ENROLL 500,000 WOMEN THROUGH PUBLIC HEALTH HOSPITALS FOR THIS SERVICE AND TO ADVERTISE THIS SERVICE HEAVILY IN THE PRINT MEDIA FOR ITS UPTAKE AMONGST WOMEN IN KENYA. EACH SMS WILL BE CHARGED AT KSH. 2 BUT IN THE LONG RUN THROUGH CORPORATE SPONSORSHIP IT WILL BE FREE TO ALL WOMEN.
