Hi Kirsten. Thanks for sharing the work your group is doing to reduce maternal mortality in Guatemala!
Is the program part of a particular organization's work in this field? It would be great to learn more about what the group is doing.
    "We are currently conducting an NIH-funded project using smartphones to improve community-based assessment of mother and baby." In the photos it looks like the phones are used for certain tests. Are they used to monitor overtime? Is an app being used?

How is long term follow up care organized in the community? Is your team providing care, or are local midwives trained on how to follow these conditions - ex) diabetes?

This Idea posted in the challenge might interest you - BabyStream Pro, " a device where rural health workers can get a streamlined view & update mother's info at every stage of her pregnancy."

Are you familiar with the Safe Delivery App? I posted about it in the research phase. It seems like an awesome tool for midwives at work, and also for teaching. https://challenges.openideo.com/challenge/new-life/research/the-safe-delivery-app

Good luck with the project!

Hi Anna Lee.
Great idea! Thanks for sharing it here.
As you mention some users may not have computers, printers, or internet access at home. As a mechanism to get Lists to users I wonder if targeting health care providers/clinics, or services such as WIC that low income women access during pregnancy, as partners, might be a way to connect them to this resource?

Hi Eunice.
Thank you for sharing the link to the research! There looks to be very interesting and useful information collected. http://pma2020.org/reports/pma2017uganda-r5-adolescent-brief
Do you know offhand how this survey is being advertised to women and teens so that they participate? When I have time I am going to spend some time on the website to learn more.

(Eunice I didn't see your response initially. I just came back to the Challenge site and was scanning ideas and saw your reply. I have been an OpenIDEO community member for a while. Here is a tip. When you reply to a comment, reply under the comment - hit the "blue reply" and a comment box will appear. When you do that the person who you are writing to gets a notification email that you replied. Actually if there is a thread of comments, "a conversation", everyone in the thread will get a notification email, so they can join in.)

Maybe link the Website in your post above so other community members can reference it too?
