HelloMama – Using Digital Health Platforms to Improve Health Outcomes for Pregnant Women and New Mothers in Nigeria

View Resource View Resource

MCSP coordinated the efforts of Pathfinder International and the Praekelt Foundation, in collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Health and State Ministry of Health officials, to develop a locally led and planned-for-scale mobile messaging platform aligned with national health priorities, policies, and systems for pregnant women, newborns, children under 1 year, and their families that complements the efforts of frontline health workers.

The MCSP Nigeria HelloMama program had two broad objectives:

  • Establish an operational, nationally scalable platform with adequate coverage that makes age- and stage-based mobile messages available to the target population and links to existing health information systems.
  • Complement supply-side maternal, newborn, and child health (MNCH) interventions by improving knowledge and adoption of healthy and safe MNCH practices.
