ARMMAN believes in scaling cost-effective and evidence-based Mobile Health (mHealth) solutions to provide pregnant women, mothers and children with critical preventive care information and train health workers. This unique blend of leveraging technology and partnerships and piloting innovations, along with our commitment to creating meaningful social impact requires us to undertake systematic research towards creating evidence. Such evidence is to inform potential scaling up of interventions in other comparable and similar contexts in India and elsewhere; and to contribute to the scholarship in the area of designing and implementing mHealth interventions in maternal and child health care in settings with limited resources. Experiences of ARMMAN colleagues working on the ground continue to demonstrate the need to engage with the emerging conceptual or substantive issues and operational challenges in the mHealth space, a field which is in its nascent stages in India, at least in maternal and child health.
