SMS Maama, Kampala, Uganda
SMS Maama is a student run project aimed at increasing access to maternal health information, empowering women to recognize common pregnancy-related complications before they become more serious.
We are in the process of getting an official partnership with the Benedict Medical Centre (staff shown in this photo from right: 2 of the midwives at the facility and Betty Nakabuye) and TMCG the medical concierge group a technology firm to load texts into the cloud and develop an algorithm. The messages to be sent will include informational texts, antenatal appointment reminders and interactive screening texts. Check out our website at http://www.smsmaama.org/
