m-MIST Study

Cameroon’s maternal mortality ratio and perinatal mortality rate are among the highest worldwide, and the World Health Organization (WHO) has also classified Cameroon as having a critical shortage of healthcare personnel and equipment. Being that Cameroon has expanding mobile phone coverage, our goal is to evaluate medical information service via mobile telephone (m-MIST) to improve pregnancy outcomes in this low-income country. Our study will include the 19 health districts in northwest Cameroon (65,000 annual deliveries) and compare outcomes with and without m-MIST.

The project is to screen 1000 female sex workers in Cameroon for cervical cancer and STIs in the Horizons Femmes Clinics, a large non-governmental organization that caters to female sex workers in Cameroon.
