In PSI Impact, J&J’s Maggie FitzPatrick and Alice Lin Fabiano talked about the launch of MomConnect, a mobile service supported by Johnson & Johnson that aims to help every pregnant woman in South Africa gain critical information about pregnancy on a mobile phone. In the year since it began, the service has gained 500,000 users, 98% of whom say the messages have helped them. It is the largest program of its kind ever implemented by a government.
MomConnect is just one of the ways we are committed to improving the lives of mothers and babies around the world. Read more about our mHealth programs and our commitment to improving the health of developing nations here.
