OGOW Health is testing a technological solution designed to improve access to high-quality, affordable care for women, new mothers, and newborns in Somalia. The goal is to support rural and urban health facilities in medical records and health promotion by providing needed information to providers and caregivers to make informed decisions. By offering support to women and girls, OGOW’s platform (easy-to-use in the Somali language) offers a personalized immunization schedule for each family member’s vaccination needs and provides individualized reminders on when and where to go for services; ultimately improving their standard of care, and further building trust between patients and healthcare systems. OGOW is also testing a powerful dashboard designed to help administrators and governments access real-time, consolidated data on various health indicators, leading to more data-driven planning and decision making aimed at achieving their desired health outcomes.
