At mTena we work hard to ensure women in Ethiopia have access to much needed maternal and infant care information that allows them to make the right decisions for themselves and their families. With the use of simple text messages we provide information on prevalent feelings associated with pregancy, dietary tips & visitation notifications among others. As mTena aims to be inclusive we also have specific messages that are tailored to the spouses of the expectant women. This allows the partners to take part in the care & well-being of their expectant partners. With these targeted messages parents are able to follow through on pregnancy & child development, ensuring that abnormalities are detected in time & equipping parents with information.
AT mTENA WE STRIVE TO REDUCE MATERNAL AND INFANT MORTALITY IN ETHIOPIA.
