MIMSI International is an exciting new organization which delivers effective, vital, and life-preserving prenatal care to pregnant women in remote areas of the developing world.
MIMSI was conceived to reduce maternal morbidity and mortality in these regions, and is pursuing this goal through several approaches. MIMSI aims to address the limited access that many pregnant women have to vital prenatal surveillance by developing a large body of local and international community volunteers. Trained in prenatal monitoring and working side by side with health care professionals, these volunteers are able to treat pregnant women who were previously considered out of medical reach.
Additionally, the use of specially-designed cloud-based software allows MIMSI to accelerate the reporting of a patient’s status, improving the communication and coordination of health workers in the field. The implementation of these systems in mobile clinics and in new, sustainable health centers will revolutionize the quality of prenatal care in rural, underserved populations.
