Following multiple training sessions on using mobile phones for data collection as well as formal workshops on HIV/AIDS, Family Planning, Reproductive/Maternal Health and Child Survival, Village Health Teams have been dispatched into the field to register and collect data from households in their respective villages. Data is being collected on six questionnaires developed by LFM to capture data on children over five with women not of reproductive age, children under five, newborns (28 days or less), husbands/partners, women over the age of 50 and lastly women of reproductive age. The Pilot Project is presently ongoing. To date, over 3500 patients have been registered along with over 1000 women of reproductive age.
Our Mission…The mission of Life for Mothers is to reduce maternal/neonatal mortality in developing countries using a holistic strategy that encompasses health system strengthening and women's empowerment.
