MomConnect is a South African National Department of Health programme with over 20 partners from the public and private sectors.
MomConnect aims to support maternal health through the use of cell phone based technologies integrated into maternal and child health services. The services are free to the user, and messages are available in all 11 official languages. It includes stage-based health messages developed by the National Department of Health with support from our expert partners at Baby Center, a text-based helpdesk that provides answers to pressing questions, a library of health information accessed via a USSD menu, and a service rating feature that allows subscribers to report on the quality of services they receive at facilities. Integrating directly with the national health system, MomConnect presents decision-makers with control interfaces and dashboards to ensure that feedback from mothers reaches the highest levels of government.
