Vodacom and Mondia, a private mobile technology company, have announced the launch of the Mum & Baby maternal health service across the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
According to statement from Mondia, Mum & Baby is a free mobile health intervention service that provides Vodacom DRC subscribers with maternal, neo-natal and child health information in French.
Mum & Baby’s future enhancements in the DRC will provide interactive tools including a due-date calculator, an immunisation calendar, medication reminder, medication safety information and other health tools and services, it added.
Chief Executive Officer of Mondia Group, Dr. Amadeo Rahmann, said, “Accessing healthcare in Africa can be challenging, and Mum & Baby provides a free and convenient way of accessing instant expert advice where it is most needed.
“The Mum & Baby service leverages Mondia’s extensive network and expertise in content production and curation, and we expect it to continue to deliver positive social impact wherever it is rolled out.”
Launched in South Africa in 2017, the Mum & Baby service had 1.2 million registered subscribers as of August 2018. The next rollout of the service will take place across Lesotho before the end of March 2021.
