Pagers For Streamlining Birth Registration: Cunning Responds To PSFK Future Of Health Report
Using pagers and pictorial guidebooks, expectant mothers in rural communities can easily register their babies.
Pagers For Streamlining Birth Registration
Women are not registering their babies due to the tedious process of traveling long distances to wait in line for an appointment, only to receive a date to return again with their husband and baby for the official registration.
Distribute pagers and pictorial guidebooks that can be passed between expectant mothers in rural communities. The pictorial guidebook will explain why it is beneficial to register their baby. Immediately after the baby is born, the pager button is pressed, and the nearest hospital will be alerted to the exact time/date/location of a new baby (most important elements in a birth certificate). In return, the hospital will send back an appointment/registration time.
