Jacaranda launches response to COVID-19

As COVID-19 cases increase across Kenya, Jacaranda has joined with government and foundation partners to mitigate the impact on maternal health across 7 counties, encompassing nearly 30% of the population.  By rapidly expanding PROMPTS their digital health platform connecting mothers to care, and by deploying their new tele-triaging and emergency referral tracking tools, Jacaranda has ensured that despite increased delays visiting health facilities, mothers continue to receive life-saving care.  In addition, Jacaranda’s Emergency Obstetric and Newborn Care nurse mentors are now using digital tools to carry out training modules and socially distanced simulation drills to fast track obstetric skills.
