Creating a Conversational User Interface for pregnant women in Nigeria

In collaboration with: Shir David, Dalit Shalom, Lindsey Johnson & Michelle Hessel.

For the past month we've been focused on designing a Conversational User Interface (CUI) as part of the Microsoft Design Challenge 2016. The numbers around the situation of pregnant women in Nigeria are astonishing. 51% of the total world child deaths are in Africa. Moreover, 100 women die daily in northern Nigeria during childbirth. Most of them do not attend any antenatal care and give birth with unskilled help in their homes, without attending any health facility.

Our mission is to use existing technology to help improve maternal care and aid in reducing infant mortality.
