The purpose of these workshops was to discuss current priorities, initiatives and challenges in delivering care for women with high-risk pregnancies before and after birth, and to specifically discuss the role for digital and community-level interventions in the Indian context.

The workshops took the format of short introductory presentations to set the scene, followed by three-panel discussions around three key issues:

  • High-risk pregnancy conditions and NCDs
  • Challenges and priorities in mHealth in maternal health and NCDs in India
  • The role of community health workers in bridging NCD and MCH programs
