We drive impact by designing solutions with and for mothers, and the frontline nurses and governments that support them, and using data to improve quality of care.
Specifically our solutions drive impact in three areas:
Given the complexity of the systems we’re trying to change, we field data and insights from across a mother’s journey through the health system to monitor the connected, yet often-siloed, gaps impacting outcomes. The research we conduct and the data tools we co-design with our government partners help inform respectful care, improve its quality, and direct limited resources to where they are most needed, and we monitor our impact on outcomes through national health information systems, like KHIS2.
We track what mothers ask us and self-report on PROMPTS to understand risks, optimize referral, and better understand quality of care from the client’s perspective and monitor how frontline nurses and midwives are performing through MENTORS to understand gaps in critical skills within facilities.
We rely on a mixture of participatory research approaches to understand contextual challenges impacting mothers and babies: Human Centered Design, in-depth interviews, and implementation research.
