Harnessing the power of AI to improve maternal and child health outcomes

ARMMAN is actively collaborating with various organizations to create digital tools and programmes that harness technology for enhancing access to quality healthcare. Whether it’s AI-driven solutions or personalized content delivered through WhatsApp, we’re utilizing technological advancements to ensure that more women, children, and their families receive high-quality healthcare.

Recently we won the the Grand Challenges Grant for Catalyzing Equitable Artificial Intelligence (AI), an initiative aimed at catalyzing innovation to address urgent global health and development issues, funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF).This grant will help us to integrate Large Language Models (LLM) – powered co-pilot into an existing learning and support application to improve the training of auxiliary nurses and midwives (ANMs) so they can better manage high-risk pregnancies.

Amrita Mahale, the Director of Innovation at ARMMAN, showcased our groundbreaking work on the Integrated High-Risk Pregnancy Tracking and Management (IHRPTM) LLM project during the Grand Challenges Annual meeting in Senegal, to Bill Gates and prominent leaders from the BMGF. The project earned us a place among the top 5 innovations acknowledged by Bill Gates. (Read here https://www.gatesnotes.com/Grand-Challengesinnovations-in-Senegal).

Additionally, we have partnered with Google India to leverage AI for improving listenership and reducing dropouts in Kilkari and mMitra programmes. These collaborations are instrumental in efficiently scaling our impact while maintaining a commitment to quality. Our overarching goal is to reach 70 million women and their children and train 850,000 health workers in the next seven years, following an equity-based, gender-transformative approach
