Increase access to reproductive health care for women using CommCare.

CommCare for Reproductive Health

Studies have shown that when women are able to make informed decisions regarding their family planning needs, their families are more economically secure, educated, and healthy. Yet, it is estimated that worldwide there are 215 million women and girls whose FP needs are not being met (CHANGE 2012). As a result, it is estimated that there are 75 million unplanned pregnancies each year, which has negative health outcomes for women and their families.

Dimagi and partners have been working together to develop programs and technologies that increase women’s access to reproductive health care, specifically to FP and safe abortion. By using mobile applications, CHWs are better able to share sensitive messages, track FP commodities, and ensure safe and efficient follow-up of patients after procedures.
