DESCRIPTION:
E-Mamta, a mother-and-child tracking web-based application, is an initiative of the Government of Gujarat. It involves name-based tracking of pregnant women for antenatal care, delivery and prenatal care. E-Mamta tracks children for immunization and nutrition, adolescents for reproductive and child health services and eligible couples for family planning. Recently, the E-Mamta system has been extended to integrate mobile devices and applications for wider outreach.
 
This application covers all citizens of Gujarat that are covered under the Family Health Survey scheme. e potential benefits of this application are better control on estimates of infant and maternal mortality and reportage/collation into one site.
 
Besides, it also provides improved supply chain management of vaccines and drugs, improvement in registration of births and better data analysis for preparation of block/district health action plans with realistic/accurate denominators.
 
This uniquely designed management tool is being executed in Government health facilities across Gujarat. It has helped plug gaps in ensuring comprehensive maternal and child health services in rural as well urban areas. At present, E-Mamta is being implemented in all 26 districts of Gujarat: in 172 health blocks comprising 1,147 primary health centres, 318 community health centres, 26 sub- district hospitals and 26 district hospitals that form the public health care infrastructure of the state.
 
E-Mamta’s mobile integration has enabled its services to reach target citizens at a larger scale.
