Dimagi is an award-winning social enterprise that delivers an open-source software technology, CommCare, aimed at improving the efficiency and quality of impact-driven work globally. In 2016, the Human Development Innovation Fund (HDIF) awarded Dimagi a grant to address gaps in the quality of facility-based intrapartum care in Tanzania through CommCare’s mobile-based application, mLabour.

Dimagi has adapted and validated mLabour as a mobile solution that improves the quality of care provided to women and newborns during labour and delivery. The partnership to make this possible included FHI 360, the Association of Private Health Facilities in Tanzania (APHFTA), Private Nurses and Midwives Association of Tanzania (PRINMAT), CSK Research Solutions, and eight private health facilities in and around the Dar es Salaam region.
