MamaBase is a comprehensive initiative dedicated to improving maternal outcomes in Nigeria through community focused activities. The specific objectives include:
Creation of an E-Registry of Pregnant Women – This registry will not only streamline the healthcare system but also provide invaluable data on maternal and reproductive health across the state. Data obtained will serve as a cornerstone for evidence-based policy-making, ultimately improving the lives of mothers and their children.
Increase Uptake of Care at Health Facilities: By making healthcare services more accessible and user-friendly, we aim to ensure that every pregnant woman receives the care she needs from skilled health workers. We bridge the gap between pregnant women and healthcare facilities by linking them to the nearest facilities. This seamless connection ensures timely access to essential services, enhancing the overall healthcare experience at health facilities
Support Low-Income Communities: We recognize the challenges faced by pregnant women in low-income communities. MamaBase is here to provide comprehensive support, from the early stages of pregnancy through delivery, always with a focus on preserving the dignity and well-being of these mothers.
Partnership with State Health Agencies: Collaboration is key to our success. We work closely with relevant state health agencies to develop a model framework for MamaBase. This partnership ensures that our efforts are aligned with the broader healthcare ecosystem, maximizing their impact.
Continuous Follow-Up and Encouragement: Our commitment doesn’t end at registration. We follow up with registered and unregistered women, providing ongoing support to encourage the complete uptake of services throughout the continuum of care. This includes antenatal care, delivery, postnatal care, immunization, and family planning.
Efficient and Secure Data Management: Data is the foundation of our project. We have developed an efficient and secure data management platform that is interoperable with existing platforms used by health agency stakeholders. This ensures that information is easily accessible and contributes to informed decision-making.
