health offices under the Ministry to Health for better transparency and
accountability is ensured at the village level to address the maternal
health needs of the women using technology. Oxfam’s partner in developing
the project’s innovative technology applications and platforms will be
VOTO Mobile. VOTO Mobile is a Canadian technology company with years of
experience in developing applications to increase public participation in
democratic processes in collaboration with local Indonesian mobile network
