About CoMaCH

The Co-Designing Community-based ICTs Interventions for Maternal and Child Health in South Africa (CoMaCH) Network brings together researchers and practitioners from South Africa, the UK, and beyond. We recognize that community members are rarely empowered to voice their own priorities and actively participate in the design of interventions intended to benefit them. We argue for a co-design approach, to radically include community members in the design of not only new approaches to digital Maternal and Child Health in the first 1000 days, but the design of research intended to innovate the new approaches. The aim is to establish new relationships and stimulate novel research and innovation and the network is funded by GCRF Digital Innovation for Development in Africa.
