In the period December- January 2021 a total of 380 health workers are being trained by the staff of Medic Mobile in the use of mobile phones for data collection and sending messages on Ante and Post Natal Check Ups.
The impact study of the DPRP has started with the base line survey. Interviews are implemented by researchers from our partner organisation Solutions in Nepal in close cooperation with dr Pierre Pratley from the Royal Tropical Institute Amsterdam. First results are expected in March 2021.
