The purpose of this community-based randomized controlled trial is to test whether the
mCARE-II intervention package, delivered by the existing Government of Bangladesh community
health workforce, will improve neonatal and perinatal survival in a rural setting in
northwestern Bangladesh. mCARE-II is a digital health intervention, which incorporates
automated workload scheduling, client prioritization and risk stratification, overdue service
reminders and demand generation through client side reminder messaging. The intervention
package focuses on the pregnancy and early postpartum period.
