About

The goal of this study is to explore approaches to improve postpartum contraceptive counseling, information, and uptake through a collaboration between the Harvard Chan School, Rutgers School of Public Health, Jacaranda Health, Jhpiego, and IPSOS, leveraging an existing mobile health platform for intervention delivery and Jacaranda's established partnership with the Kenyan Ministry of Health, county health offices and public maternity hospitals. Jacaranda's PROMPTS mHealth platform has reached over two million pregnant women and new mothers, providing them with needed, tailored information about prenatal and postpartum health along with access to a mobile helpdesk to triage users' questions. Using a targeted human-centered-design process with early postpartum mothers, we developed targeted messaging around family planning and contraceptive method options, with the goal of integrating this new content into Jacaranda's PROMPTS platform. We will conduct a randomized controlled trial with pregnant women engaged with the PROMPTS platform to determine the impact of the intervention package on information and utilization of postpartum contraception. If proven effective, the results of this intervention will be integrated into Jacaranda's PROMPTS system at full scale.
