Child Case Management Mobile App

Kupenda has developed a mobile application to support community-based care and Covid-19 screening, referrals, and prevention for children with disabilities and their families in low income countries.

Features

Child Progress Tracking

The app’s tools enables field teams to track the physical, social, academic and emotional progress of vulnerable children based on the Washington Group measurements and Measure Evaluation’s Child Status Index, which we have tailored for children with disabilities.

Community Leader Child Case Management

The app also contains 12 tailored counseling guides that our field staff and trained local leader child advocates use to support children with disabilities and their caregivers and refer them for care.

Prioritization & Emergency Care

The app’s prioritization and emergency care feature also enables app users to provide immediate support to children who are showing signs of malnutrition, illness, abuse or life-threatening medical needs.

Impact

Last year, this app tripled the number of children our staff and leaders were able to support with counseling and care for abuse, therapy, education, stigma, and medical care needs.

To learn more about this project, check out the short video created by our Boston University partners and a video presentation by our Development Director.
