Maternal and Newborn Health

A collaborative platform is being developed for maternal and child Health that will be used to connect women, midwives, pediatricians and other care providers in a mobile phone enabled network.  The system will be used to train health professionals (pediatricians, neonatologists, nurses, mid-wives). The collaboration tools will be used to create online communities of practice for health professionals.
