Exploring pregnancy outcomes

 

Evaluating the use of SMS mobile surveys to understand pregnancy outcomes of women in Kenya

 

The GEMMA Fund at Emory University used mSurvey to help understand the feasibility and acceptability of using SMS mobile surveys to collect sensitive information about pregnancy outcomes in Kenya. 

Researchers sent a one time mobile survey to a random sample of 500 women aged 18-24 in the mSurvey Kenya audience asking about their pregnancy history and how they felt answering these types of questions over mobile.
