Session D1:
Digital Interventions: Supporting Healthy Community and Life Changes

Michelle Hall, Jessica Rowe
3:30 PM - 4:45 PM

Increasingly, health practitioners are using technology-enabled interventions to improve awareness and support positive life changes. This session demonstrated three different projects that range from efforts to reduce maternal mortality (7.5 million pregnancy-related deaths per year), to reducing early childhood caries in at-risk children, to conveying the importance of HIV-treatment adherence. Each project was presented with attention to lessons learned that can be applied to other potential interventions.
