Maternal, Newborn and Child Health (MNCH) remains a major problem in several regions of the world, including Sub-Saharan Africa. The infant mortality rate is often more than double the world average and the rate of women living in rural areas is around 80% for the African market.
This is why MNCH has been targeted as one of the health priorities by several humanitarian aid organizations, national and supranational including The World Health Organization (WHO), United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights (ACHPR) and Global Affairs Canada (AMC).
In synergy with the global trend and the development priority of national and supranational organizations, HCare has developed a service offering focused on tele-obstetrics and tele-radiology aimed at increasing the number of antenatal consultations and reducing the number of deaths and complications related to pregnancy in rural areas.
Despite the emergence of some encouraging initiatives, access to specialized healthcare services, as well as the quality of care available to isolated communities in northern Canada remain prominent issues.
Numerous communities among which many are First Nations face specific challenges related to the accessibility of health services in all geographic regions; however, the challenges are greater in rural, remote and northern communities.
Geographic location, resource constraints, understaffing, as well as poor training of health professionals are factors affecting the delivery of healthcare services in isolated communities. This is where telehealth, and especially specialized teleconsultation, comes into play.
