SMS Maama

Approximately 1 in 44 women in Uganda will die from pregnancy related complications throughout their lifetimes. SMS Maama is an automated text messaging service for pregnant women in Uganda that harnesses mobile technology to send health information and screen for these potential pregnancy related complications before they become more serious. As an organization, we believe every woman has the right to information and the right to receive respectful maternity care. By providing access to this necessary health information, SMS Maama works to empower women and serve as a modern addition to pregnancy healthcare in Uganda.
