Solution Overview & Benefits

The Safe Delivery App is a smartphone application that provides skilled birth attendants with instant access to clinical guidelines on Basic Emergency Obstetric and Neonatal Care (BEmONC). The app leverages the growing ubiquity of mobile phones to provide life-saving information and guidance. With the support of MSD for Mothers and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the app was developed and validated in cooperation between Maternity Foundation and leading experts within mHealth from the Universities of Copenhagen and Southern Denmark. The impact is continuously documented on a global scale.

History & Development

In 2012 the Maternity Foundation received funding to develop a demo version of the Safe Delivery App and to test it in a randomized controlled trial in Ethiopia. Based on the strong results from that study, Maternity Foundation, University of Copenhagen, and University of Southern Denmark developed the full version of the Safe Delivery App that is now being scaled up in several countries in Asia, and East and West Africa.
