CHV Decision Support

This brief outlines the results and lessons from a intervention project that sought to enhance community health volunteers’ (CHV) performance, by testing the use of mobile phone technology to deliver essential information and support to their decision-making. The m-Health tool was designed to improve CHV’s ability to recognise danger signs in pregnant women, new mothers and newborns, and to make timely referrals for care.

Electronic Partograph

The partograph is a useful tool in managing labour and - when correctly used - can help birth attendants detect abnormal labour progression and make timely decision on interventions. However, its use is generally low in Kenya especially in lower level health facilities. In some cases, health workers use the partograph as a data tool – often filled in after the birth - rather than a clinical decision support tool during the labour process.
