Grameen Foundation helps the world's poorest – especially women – improve their lives and escape poverty by providing them with access to appropriate financial services, life-changing information and unique income-generating opportunities. The MOTECH project, an initiative of Grameen, is an open source software platform for building mobile health solutions that improve health outcomes for the world's poor through access to relevant health information. Notable deployments include the Mobile Midwife program in Ghana, which provides pregnant women and their families with vital information about how to have healthy pregnancies, and the Ananya project in Bihar, which aims to improve outcomes in maternal/child health as well as TB treatment.
