FOLLOW-UP OF THE MATERNAL AND CHILD HEALTHCARE PROGRAM

WE GENERATE CONTACT WITH THE MOTHER AND ACCOMPANY HER EVOLUTION

The Maternal and Child Healthcare Program provides mothers with the necessary healthcare from the beginning of their pregnancy until the first month after giving birth. It also covers their children's needs during the first 12 months. These services are included in the Compulsory Medical Plan.

A thorough follow-up of these patients is essential: maternal and child healthcare is closely related to NCDs and their risk factors. Prenatal malnutrition and low birth weight predispose mother and child to obesity, high arterial blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes.

Through the follow-up system of our Maternal and Child Healthcare Program, we generate contact with the mother as from the diagnosis of her pregnancy and we accompany her evolution step by step, recording and simultaneously analyzing the information.

The main benefits of this system are:

  • It enables the early detection of high-risk pregnancies.

  • It gives support and information to the mother.
  • It makes possible the contextual analysis of the health system. It allows the (contextual) analysis of the health system performance (in context).
