Executive Summary

Amakomaya is a web and mobile application to help women in Nepal address the challenges of prenatal care, pregnancy, and maternal mortality. A team of local engineers and healthcare professionals developed Amakomaya after being awarded a US$ 4,000 grant from the Internet Society (ISOC) in 2011. Once a woman sets up her free profile on the application, she receives audio, video, and text content suited to her stage of pregnancy. These materials are accessible through mobile phones and can be downloaded. So far, Amakomaya has reached 11 communities, and 1,077 women have taken advantage of its materials. Amakomaya is an example of leveraging ICTs for a successful public health intervention.
