Integrated use of digital connectivity and data to improve woman and child health

This project evaluates the impact of a telemedicine-based intervention and outreach efforts of Karma Healthcare in the areas of its clinical operations. The intervention aims at increasing access to formal healthcare in rural areas of India and improving health outcomes for women and children owing to the provision of RMNCH+A services, dedicated awareness programmes through women and children-focused e-doctor clinics in rural Southern Rajasthan. These e-clinics are serving a population of about 25,000 residents, with each focusing on anaemia in women and malnutrition in children. 

Impact: The project aims at providing insights to policymakers on the role of telemedicine to improve healthcare access and improve the health of women and children in low-income groups in LMICs.
