Content & features

The App consists of 12 content modules addressing key interventions of childbirth emergencies and preventative procedures, all aligned to international clinical guidelines.

Five basic features guide health workers in the App: animated instruction videos, action cards, drug lists, practical procedures, and an individualized e-learning component, MyLearning.

The App works offline once downloaded, so healthcare workers in even the most remote settings can always refer to it   – either on the job, in their spare time, or as part of their training.

It is available in global versions in French and English and has been adapted into numerous languages and clinical guidelines for specific countries, including Hindi, Myanmar language, Russian, Amharic and Bangla.
