MOTIF (MObile Technology for Improved Family Planning) is an innovative mobile phone-based intervention, providing personalised post-abortion family planning (PAFP) support for Marie Stopes International Cambodia (MSIC) clients. Providing women with contraceptive methods following abortion is important to reduce repeat abortion rates.
The MOTIF project comprised the development, implementation and the evaluation of a mobile phone-based intervention using voice messages(Verboice) to support post-abortion family planning.
The International Labour Organisation’s Better Factories Cambodia program (BFC) launched Kamako Chhnoeum (Outstanding Worker) on September 1, 2013. The system is available for free to workers calling on two networks: Smart and Cellcard. Metfone will join the program soon.
The project uses an Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system – Verboice to educate garment and footwear workers on issues of importance to them. The format is a phone-in quiz where workers answer questions related to salary and allowances, occupational health and safety, and personal health. The caller chooses one topic on which they would like to be quizzed and is then asked a series of three questions.
