The Women Deliver initiative released an action toolkit which has sections like Get Inspired, Get Informed, Get Connected, Get Moving, Sustain Your Momentum and Make Lasting Change. It seeks to promote action around political, economic, socio-cultural and technological solutions. It outlines how policy makers, communities, health care providers and media all play a part in ensuring maternal health becomes a priority. In fact it highlights some of the inspiration posts we've been making here on OpenIDEO as case studies.

Although the toolkit is for a highly literate, internet savvy youth audience and is revolved around activism – I feel it provides inspiration for the bundling of information and worksheets which could be tailored for community health workers in combination with other communication-related ideas that have been shared on this challenge.
