Meeting with Mothers of Africa team members in Monaco, Suzanne Batstone and Noleine Gally, was the opportunity to share education and healthcare activities in Shiyala Village in Zambia. As stated in their website , ” Each day in Africa the number of mothers who die in childbirth is equivalent to the number of seats in three jumbo jets”, maternal health remains a challenge in rural areas. Anna Matranga, founder of AMC Alliances and Consulting and Veronique Thouvenot introduced ZMD mobile App developed by the Zero Mothers Die global partnership initiative to deploy mobile technology solutions for the reduction of maternal and newborn mortality.
After this constructive first meeting, Mothers of Africa team in Monaco and Zero Mothers Die look forward to pursue the dialogue in the coming months.

We have created an original infographic – in English and French – to give an overview of our activities since the launch in 2013. Since then, we have embarked on innovative health projects both independently and in partnership with other eHealth enthusiasts from all over the world, our constant partners being Connecting Nurses, Connecting Midwives and UniversalDoctor ( more about WeObs ).
No, we didn’t make a mistake! The eHealth event of this year by the Finnish Society of Telemedicine and eHealth is indeed a cruise that goes between capital cities of Helsinki, Finland and Stockholm.
Our own Angelika Silva is representing the Zero Mothers Die App at the Conference: she became part of the WeObservatory following the 2017 Medetel event and is now in charge of further developing ZMD on behalf of the WeObs in collaboration with the National Institute of Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health Fernandes Figueira that intends to translate and adapt the Zero Mothers Die mobile application to the Portuguese language with the participation of institutional actors. More about her activities on our website.
You can follow the Conference on twitter under #eHealth2018.
