Maternal and Child Health App

We know that finding information online is a time saver and allows you to do your research at any time of day. However, finding trusted sources of information can be difficult, and it can be challenging to know which information is correct.  

Developed by trusted MCH services, the MCH App allows users to ask questions of digital assistant Nora, and provides reminders about upcoming MCH appointments and seasonal information. It also offers a list of useful contacts and FAQs that link to a trusted online source. 

You can download the MCH App for free on Google Play or the Apple App Store.
