Leveraging technology to create scalable solutions to empower mothers and enable the nurturing of healthy children
ARMMAN (Advancing Reduction In Mortality And Morbidity Of Mothers, Children And Neonates) is an Indian non-profit creating cost-effective, tech-based solutions to reduce maternal and child mortality and morbidity.
We work directly with pregnant women and mothers to improve their health-seeking behaviour while building capacities of health workers to ensure efficient antenatal and childhood care, and timely diagnosis, management and referral of high-risk pregnancies.
We adopt a “tech plus touch” approach – leveraging the deep mobile penetration in the country, as well as existing health worker networks of the government and partner NGOs to improve health outcomes.
ARMMAN currently implements the largest mobile-based maternal messaging programme (Kilkari) and frontline health worker training programme (Mobile Academy), in collaboration with the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) of India.
Our goal is to reach 70 million women and their children and train 850,000 health workers in the next seven years through mobile health (mHealth) technology, offering nuanced and targeted solutions that address political, economic, social, and cultural barriers via an equity-based, gender transformative approach.
