Aditya Kulkarni is developing mobile health solutions to help reduce maternal and child mortality in areas with limited health resources.
He is the co-creator of CareMother, a mobile and online platform that connects health workers to gynaecologists and empowers them to carry out regular doorstep antenatal check-ups to pregnant women in any setting.
The app enables women to monitor their pregnancy, health workers to early identify any potential or emerging high-risk complications and gynaecologists to schedule timely interventions or follow ups. Within the last two years Aditya and his team have worked with more than 15 organisations and provided affordable care to more than 30,000 pregnant women in over 800 villages in India, Bangladesh and Kenya.
CareMother has also created more than 100 jobs for health workers and has led to significant improvements in how antenatal care is delivered at a grassroots level.
Aditya is a 2018 Queen's Young Leader.
