Telemedicine system for improving maternal and neonatal health: an interventional trial in Tanzania.

In Tanzania, maternal and neonatal mortality is still high, mainly due to poor quality of Antenatal Care (ANC) and Post Natal Care (PNC) services. PANDA (Pregnancy And Newborn Diagnostic Assessment) is a telemedicine system that uses mobile technology to perform adequate ANC/PNC visits according to WHO recommendations. Two pilot studies showed that PANDA is efficient in providing high-quality ANC and facilitating the continuity of care for underserved communities.

App-based symptoms screening with Xpert MTB/RIF Ultra assay used for active tuberculosis detection in migrants at point of arrivals in Italy: The E-DETECT TB intervention analysis

From 2014 to 2017, the number of migrants who came to Italy via the Mediterranean route has reached an unprecedented level. The majority of refugees and migrants were rescued in the Central Mediterranean and disembarked at ports in the Sicily region. Rapid on-spot active TB screening intervention at the point of arrival will cover most migrants arriving in EU and by detecting TB prevalent cases will limit further transmission of the disease.

Abstract Supplement: Oral Presentations

In the context of migration, pregnant women are particularly vulnerable because of a combination of physical and psychological factors. So far, there is a lack of data regarding the demographic and clinical characteristics of pregnant migrants.

Panda: A mobile-health (mHealth) system developed to support healthcare
professionals in providing complete, standardized, quality ANC. The
objective is To reduce maternal mortality, it is crucial to improve the quality
of ANC.

Using mHealth to improve the knowledge of obstetric warning signs in the low-ressource setting of Ambanja district, Madagascar

Madagascar retains a high maternal mortality rate (365/100,000 live births).
Major complications that account for nearly 75% of all maternal deaths are direct obstetric causes, such as severe bleeding, obstructed labor, infections, high blood pressure during pregnancy, and/or unsafe abortion.  It has been assumed that most of these complications can be avoided if women have
skilled birth attendants during pregnancy and childbirth.

This project aims at testing the impact of PANDA in Tanzania for improving the adherence to both ANC and PNC WHO protocols.

A Mobile Health Data Collection System for Remote Areas to Monitor Women Participating in a Cervical Cancer Screening Campaign

Barriers to efficient cervical cancer screening in low- and medium-income countries include the lack of
systematic monitoring of the participants’ data.

The aim of this study was to assess the feasibility of a mobile health (m-Health) data collection system to facilitate monitoring of women participating to cervical cancer screening campaign.
