Khushi Baby (KB) is a wearable mHealth platform tracking maternal & child health to the last mile. Their mission is to reduce infant and maternal mortality due to vaccine-preventable diseases in India. The system is comprised of a culturally tailored NFC necklace, which digitally stores immunization & health records for pregnant mothers and children; the necklace interfaces with a mobile app to update records with a simple tap. The data is synced to a dashboard for health officials to manage care delivery resources. This project seeks to demonstrate the effectiveness of the Khushi Baby platform on improving antenatal care coverage, maternal and child health awareness and hospital delivery rates in rural Udaipur, Rajasthan, India.
