Gram Vaani and the White Ribbon Alliance for Safe Motherhood have been funded to build a novel quality-of-care checklist program in Jharkhand, to bring accountability to health services provided by public and private providers. This is a global program funded by Merck.
Our partner in this program is CEDPA, with whom we have started a landscaping study this week. We hope to launch the actual program by July, where women will be empowered using Gram Vaani’s voice-based technologies to review the quality-of-care they get when they go to clinics for treatment. Our long term agenda is to use this forum to build a Yelp for health, ie. a public forum where communities can audit health providers and guide themselves to the best source of healthcare.
Stay tuned for more exciting updates!
