Conversations in Conflict Studies presents: Nidhi Vij
400 Eggers Hall- The PARCC Conference Room
"Betting Maternal Health on Mobile Phones." Nidhi Vij is a PhD Candidate in Public Administration and International Affairs at the Maxwell School. Description- This week’s conversation will focus on mobile phone use to enhance maternal health care policy awareness in India. Today, maternal health care remains an elusive concept in many rural areas in India. The low level of utilization of maternal healthcare benefits is due to the lack of awareness about current policies. Mobile phones offer low cost access to wide ranging informational networks. With the Government of India moving towards implementing a nation-wide mobile phone awareness campaign on maternal health, this conversation will look at the potential and pitfalls of implementing policy initiatives.
