Mary Kakuru Muhindo, MBChB, MPH: NoviGuide in eastern Uganda

Mary Muhindo is a 2019 PTBi post-doctoral fellow at UCSF who began her research career at the Infectious Diseases Research Collaboration (IDRC), a joint effort of Makerere University in Uganda and UCSF. 

She identified the challenges nurse-midwives face in delivering high quality care to newborns. Working with Global Strategies, she conducted a mixed methods research study testing the feasibility and acceptability of Ugandan nurse-midwives using the Global Strategies-developed NoviGuide, a mobile health technology for the management of neonatal care, helping clinicians accurately dose medications, intravenous fluids and nasogastric feedings for sick babies. She worked with Ugandan experts to align NoviGuide with Uganda newborn care guidelines, and brought the nurse-midwives aboard.
