ABOUT THE RESOURCE
Two-page case study describing how this innovative public library sent weekly text messages to pregnant women, hosted public health events and launched a maternal health education campaign on local radio stations. For health workers, the library set up a maternal health corner with free access to five computers pre-loaded with maternal health information. They trained 15 health workers to use the computers, to conduct online research and to access the pre-loaded material.
This service was initiated with support from the EIFL Public Library Innovation Programme (EIFL-PLIP) in 2012. This case study is based on impact assessment conducted by the library in 2013.
