Library service for helping mothers in Ghana

Libraries’ adaptation to their user’s needs lead to good practices. The Northern Regional Library in Tamale, Ghana, has developed the Technology for Maternal Health project through the EIFL’s Public Library Innovation Programme. In a region (Northern Ghana) where maternal mortality is high, they’ve come up with a way for distributing reliable health information to mothers, as well as connecting them to midwives: through messages sent periodically to their mobile phones.
