What is the Jiwa Ibu app?
Today, many women lack access to basic healthcare information. There is no formal authority on sharing this information and sadly many women do not know what to do in an emergency.
Jiwa Ibu is a step towards change. The Jiwa Ibu app by Hanai gives women instant access to locally focused health information that is medically validated and approved by ministries of health, doctor's directories, the latest news on COVID-19 and surveys. With a simple smartphone, women will have the ability to take charge of their health and their family’s health.
In the future, Jiwa Ibu will also be for healthcare workers. They will have access to instructional training videos, online courses, patient education materials and other resources to help improve the capacity of health workers to deliver effective service to their communities.

A crucial element for the Jiwa Ibu app is data collection and improvement upon the data collected. Jiwa Ibu is now geared to collect your feedback. With the data collected, we would be able to establish the specific needs of the Jiwa Ibu app 'bottom up' approach.
The original idea for Hanai came from founder Shamala Hinrichsen spending four months mapping the rural healthcare dissemination landscape in India followed by two weeks in Mozambique. A scientist by training, Shamala built her career communicating healthcare, moving into healthcare policy. Team Hanai formed with the expertise of a team of various skills, from many countries who have a common goal - to see social impact, especially in healthcare. Deepa Shiva and Bryan Ly joined as co-founders. Patrizia Luchetta contributes with strategy. Elisabeth Busch is our data management expert while Vincent Chu is our content and communications expert. Sanjiv Gnaneswaran, works on risk and governance while managing Hanai’s finances and two interns Natalia Velasco and Milan von Estorff are on a journey of learning and contributing. We are committed to building grassroot level championing and our first team mate from the community is Agnes Kam, who's personal story is a reason why team Hanai shifted focus to Malaysia to begin with. Our team is supported immensely by an array of experts in their field - too many to mention and very much valued.
