The Safe Delivery App

Empowering Health Workers to provide a safer birth for mothers and newborns everywhere.

The Safe Delivery App is a smartphone application that provides skilled birth attendants with direct and instant access to evidence-based and up-to-date clinical guidelines on Basic Emergency Obstetric and Neonatal Care. The App leverages the growing ubiquity of mobile phones to provide life-saving information and guidance through easy-to-understand animated instruction videos, action cards and drug lists. It can serve as a training tool both in pre- and in-service training and equips birth attendants even in the most remote areas with evidence-based and up-to-date clinical guidelines and a powerful on-the-job reference tool.

The app is developed by pediatrician Dr. Stine Lund and obstetrician Bjarke Lund Sørensen in collaboration with the NGO Maternity Foundation. The App has been evaluated in two clinical trials in Ghana and Ethiopia and is currently used in more than 40 countries in Africa and Asia.
