MANTRA: Increasing maternal and child health resilience before, during and after disasters using mobile technology in Nepal. This project investigated hazard and risk perception, and building women's resilience by improving access to information and communications before, during and after disasters arising from geohazards. It aimed to do this by developing mobile technology to support and expand existing public health interventions and social protection mechanisms, especially in rural areas of Nepal. It also covered day-to-day exposure to hazard - living and working in hazard-prone terrain. This initiative depended upon a transdisciplinary, gender-responsive, participatory and culturally-rooted approach to Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR), and maternal and child health. It combined geoscience and gendered DRR with participatory visual and textual maternal and child health care communications.
