Projects: Gender Equality, Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn & Child Health
HealthBridge is working with local partners and governments in Banke District, Nepal and Son La Province, Vietnam to reduce preventable maternal and child illness and death and improve nutrition for vulnerable mothers and children.
Together with local partners, HealthBridge is examining how poverty, social and gender barriers and living in rural areas contribute to delays in access to, and the quality and utilization of, maternal and child health services in Tanzania. HealthBridge and partners are also identifying interventions to address these barriers through community-based participatory action research.
The project is developing and pilot testing a mobile health (mHealth) application to engage and educate men on maternal health care, with the overall aim of increasing women’s utilization of essential maternal health care services.
