A pioneering health initiative in rural India, OneWorld's Maternal Health Care (MHC) project aims at providing useful information to pregnant women through mobile phones. This information on healthcare, nutrition and eating right - knowledge that a pregnant woman needs for her well being and good health - is sent to the women and their families as SMS messages in Hindi. The idea behind combining ICTs with health delivery services is to bring down the maternal mortality rate in rural India. Expectant women register for this service with their mobile phones and receive SMS messages on pre-natal care, reminders about specific tests and vaccinations, food and nutrients that ensure safety of a woman and healthy delivery of a child. The service is currently running in the villages of Uttar Pradesh in north India.
