Totohealth works on ensuring that pregnant mothers deliver safely to healthy children. The modern mobile technology has played a big role on providing the maternal and child health guides across Kenya. With utilization of SMS and voice technology, Totohealth assists in reduction of maternal and child mortality. During the early stages of growth, Totohealth is able to detect any developmental abnormalities in the expectant mothers or the children.
Pregnant women experience complications that can involve their health, their baby’s health or both. Diseases or conditions that the mother has before she becomes pregnant can lead to these complications during pregnancy. Occasionally, these instances lead to death. A pregnancy that has had no complications can still have problems when its delivery time. Majority of the pregnant women do not have enough knowledge required for childbirth and growth.
The startup was founded in 2014 by Felix Kimaru and Joseph Murgor. Parents and caregivers are offered with the electronic set of Toto health’s disability indicators which enable them monitor the development of their children. They are connected with suitable healthcare service providers for specialized care, treatment and guidance.
Upon registration, timely messages are sent to the expectant mothers depending on the stage of your pregnancy. Messages sent highlight warning signs in your pregnancy journey. These timely messages are sent to the mothers who have already delivered based on your child’s age. Enabling you to seek timely care for your child’s health is what Totohealth provides.
Totohealth helps organizations and counties improve the health of the people in the communities they serve. Parents are registered in the platform and later on sent the Totohealth content. The content is knowledgeable and educative for the people. Various subjects are included in the Totohealth content. Among the subjects covered include family planning, vaccination reminders, clinic appointments, nutrition, etc.
Communities in Kenya have been empowered with health knowledge that they never had before thanks to Totohealth.
