Without reliable health records, clinical decision making on the part of community health workers is erroneous and inefficient at the point of care where connectivity is rarely available.
Many mothers don't understand the importance of antenatal care visits and vaccines, or how many are needed before and after birth.
Current data collection methods at the last mile are outdated, cumbersome, and lack patient specificity. Health officials are missing real-time, actionable maternal and child health data, preventing community-level monitoring of which babies are missing their vaccines and which mothers are at risk of birth complications.

Khushi Baby finished its first deployment and randomized controlled trial in over 70 villages in partnership with our partner NGO, Seva Mandir, with their monthly immunization camp outreach program. We are now set to expand further in the Udaipur district to over 300 villages serviced by government ANMs in the coming year with our second evaluation.We hope to increase our footprint throughout Rajasthan by building a model consistent with National Health Mission standards for ANMs throughout India. We also look forward to translating our insights and engaging with collaborators in Africa and the Middle East where a reporting and engagement gap may be similarly failing maternal and child health care services. If you have any further questions please view our FAQ or if you need to get in touch with us please don't hesitate to contact.
In the next year and a half we hope to track over 33,000 mothers and their infants across 300+ villages, but we don't want to stop there. It's important for us to continue to validate and iterate on our system so that we can fulfill our vision: that no mother or infant be left without their due health services. But we need your help to grow. Khushi Baby is currently powered by a few dedicated full-time staff and several student volunteers, but we are always looking for ways to meet our operational costs and sustainably support our team. If you want to join us in making Khushi Baby the next symbol for closing the infant immunization gap, we would love your support. Here's how you can help:
With one tablet a health worker can reach as many as 500 children per month. It is one of the most invaluable donations you could make and is a gift that keeps on giving for years to come.
25 dollars provides all the necklaces one vaccination camp will need on average for a given month. Help us track 25 more children and make sure they get the vaccines they deserve.
