A woman dying to give birth to life is one of life's cruelest ironies. A child dying before experiencing life is not just a tragedy but an injustice. Safe motherhood and a secure childhood should not only be a promise for the distant future but a fundamental right.


ARMMAN is a secular, India based nonprofit organization committed to improving the well being of pregnant mothers, newborn infants and children in the first five years of their life. The name ARMMAN (meaning a wish in Hindi) is an acronym for ADVANCING REDUCTION IN MORTALITY AND MORBIDITY OF MOTHERS, CHILDREN AND NEONATES. It also stands for the fervent wish that we members of ARMMAN share; that no mother, neonate, infant or child in India dies for want of care.

Mother and Child High Risk Factor Tracking

Mother and Child high risk factor tracking with SMS Alert system is a comprehensive mobile based tool that supports the work of the Auxillary Nurse Midwife (ANM) and ensures that mothers and children with high-risk factors are picked up early and referred in time. It is designed to collate information of all pregnant women and children and use it to track high risk factors and ensure closure in the loop of care.


The ANMs are provided with android based tablets with the mKhushali app that has encoded antenatal, postnatal, infancy and childhood forms that take the ANM through the signs and symptoms to be noted, diagnostic investigations to be performed and provide intuitive and real-time situational alerts regarding the high risk factor present, treatment to be given and need for referral.

Arogya Sakhi Home Based Care

Arogya Sakhi Home Based Care

The villagers in most part of rural India have to travel long distances to access health care. Women usually travel with a chaperone, thus leading to loss of wages for two persons. Access to information, demand creation and hospital based provision of health services like monitoring and diagnostic investigations are not adequate in rural India. Also health care costs are prohibitive leading to a lack of access to care in most villages in rural India.

There is an urgent and unmet need for improved access to after work-hours home based individualized and diagnostic, monitoring and curative services during the antenatal and postnatal period and during childhood, which will also ensure reduction in costs of health care. It is for these reasons that trusted women leaders are selected through community partners in villages and trained to become health entrepreneurs.

mMitra has reached 600,000 enrolments impacting more than 1 million lives. We invite you to celebrate this remarkable milestone with us...







In July, we launched mKhushali app (a intuitive digital jobaid) for Auxillary Nurse Midwives as part of the 'MCTS (Mother and Child High Risk factor tracking system) with SMS high risk alerts' project in Nandurbar, MH supported by Tata Trusts. Last few weeks were consumed with refresher trainings and data collection. One of the ANMs, Jermi Sanjay Valvi, who is also a lactating mother, came with her mother-in-law and 4-month-old baby to attend the training. We have enrolled her in our mMitra program :). What better way to get the government health workers support a program than enrolling them in it themselves! Closing fast to Go Live ...
