They have created an online survey for pregnant women and new mothers , the results of which will be analyzed in the upcoming month – https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/zmd-app

ZMD was also presented at this year’s  Helthio – an event that brings together more than 10,000 citizens and healthcare system users, with more than 5,000 healthcare professionals and about 1,000 companies from diverse backgrounds. The presentation was done and made by the co-founders Dr. Véronique Thouvenot and Dr. Serrano Pons, and Dr. Alegria, director of Gambo Hospital in Ethiopia. The material for the presentation was based on the research conducted with IFF in Rio, Brazil (above) and work done by Chinomso Ibe, nurse in Nigeria (on the pictures showed using the ZMD App).
