Reducing infant and maternal mortality in Africa with an app that sends reminders about medical appointments in the local language
Karangué's innovative approach
The Karangué Project, which was designed by two Senegalese students, aims to reduce infant and maternal mortality, despite the high illiteracy rate and carelessness. Karangué offers a simple and effective service, which sends voice and written messages in the local language to ensure that women do not miss vaccination dates or pre-natal appointments. Karangué is available as a mobile application, and ensures better medical follow-up.
