SPAQ has been introduced in 12 medical facilities in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Sierra Leone. Over 2000 digital antenatal examinations have already been conducted using SPAQ.
At a three-month POC in Kwango, 99% of pregnant women said they were more satisfied than a regular antenatal checkup. Many pregnant women gather for the improved service. Seven medical facilities that introduced SPAQ received an average of 74% more antenatal examinations per month.
Over 80 abnormalities were found by SPAQ, including ectopic pregnancy, placenta previa, hydatidiform mole, preeclampsia, and multiple births. Healthcare workers who used SPAQ reported that they saved 28 lives. The number of pregnant women has increased, and the income of medical facilities where SPAQ has been introduced has increased by 42%.
SOIK continues to develop SPAQ as a business that creates social impact.
