This mCARE project aims to develop and test an integrated mobile phone-based data system that links rural community health workers (CHW) and their clients (pregnant women and newborns), in order to 1) vastly improve pregnancy and birth registration, 2) effectively target the delivery of care to high risk mothers and newborns, and 3) enhance survival of preterm and growth restricted infants in resource-poor settings. The goal is to improve pregnancy and enhance survival of preterm infants in resource-poor settings. This project is being implemented in the JiVitA Project Site in rural Gaibandha District of Bangladesh, one of the largest rural population research sites in South Asia, covering 650,000 people and where 90% of all infants are reported to be born at home.
