November 1st 2017, GetIN was rolled out in Kanungu District and to date the total number of young pregnant women reached by this initiative in Kanungu alone is 1000 women. They have been provided with information about access to Antenatal services, the benefits of attending ANC, and how to go about delivering at the hospital.
Since most women die due to unskilled maternal health care delivery services, GetIN believes that linking pregnant girls to health facilities for ANC, delivery and post par-tum care services will help reduce the high rate of maternal deaths in Uganda.

The GetIN team continues to support health workers in reaching out to young pregnant women by giving them access to a smart phone and the GetIN App. This enables the health workers to enter these women into the system so as to follow up and monitor them. The team also does technical visits to support health workers on any technology related issues on using the app.
On August 3rd 2018, GetIN was rolled out in Bundibugyo as a continuation of their successful pilot launch in Kanunugu district.
