The University of Washington received a $250,000 grant this week to continue a project that allows pregnant women in remote Africa to access health care through text message.

Dr. Jennifer Unger, an assistant professor at UW, has been working on this mobile health care technology since 2012. She is the primary investigator on the Mobile WACh program, which is named for the UW’s Global Center for Integrated Health of Women, Adolescents and Children.

The new grant, awarded by Saving Lives at Birth, focuses specifically on assisting mothers in the months right before and after a baby is born.
