“Children, newborns and mothers have a greater chance of surviving today than they did just two decades ago… In 2017 alone, 6.3 million children under the age of 15 died – including 5.4 million children under the age of 5 and 2.5 million infants less than one month old. Every day, an estimated 830 women die from causes related to pregnancy or childbirth.” (UNICEF, 2019). Many of these deaths are caused by diseases like pneumonia, malaria and diarrhoea and severe bleeding and can be prevented by more efficient use of resources within underfunded health systems, struggling to provide quality essential services. Digital health solutions can provide better access to information for patients, community health workers and facility clinicians, allowing them to reach patients within the last mile. Better data for policy makers, enabled evidence driven decision making and can lead to significant improvements on service provision.
