Safe Delivery App (SDA)


SDA supports skilled birth attendants (midwives) to quickly diagnose issues during pregnancy and with newborns and offers step-by-step guidelines for performing treatments. It is free to download and can be preinstalled so that providers can watch the animated instruction videos and read the action cards and drug lists whether or not they have Wi-Fi. SDA formally launched in Ghana in 2017 and has been integrated into training carried out by United Nations Population Fund, Ghana Health Service, Christian Health Association of Ghana, and Norsaac and virtual training by the Ministry of Health Ghana. SDA also has a COVID-19 content module that provides skilled birth attendants with relevant information, animated video instructions, and checklists to manage COVID-19 related infections in the health facilities, prevention, breastfeeding, and vertical transmission.
