Background

Jacaranda Health is a non-profit organization that believes every woman and her family should experience childbirth safely and with dignity. Founded in 2011, we work with governments to improve the quality of care in the public sector, where the majority of under-served women deliver babies. In a short period of time, Jacaranda has deployed innovative, low-cost tools and processes that are dramatically changing the status quo in government hospitals. From 3 hospital partners in 2015, we now work with 100+ hospitals across 5 Kenyan counties. Our digital health platform has enrolled 150,000+ pregnant women and new mothers, while our provider training programs reach 1500+ providers every quarter. We have an ambitious scaling strategy for catalyzing change across the country and the region. Please visit www.jacarandahealth.org  for more details.
