    Hullo, yes looking forward indeed

  • Globalhealthguru

    Hullo everyone!

  • Mandy

    Hello all! I am on the MAMA team and will be helping to facilitate your questions and make sure our panelists see them. Please post your questions in the comments box. Thank you for joining and looking forward to a great sessions.

  • Cecile Bruxelles

    Hello!

  • Globalhealthguru

    Hi there, I hope I didn’t get the time incorrect. Was it 10am Eastern?

  • EmperorNEC

    Hi everyone, It hasn’t started at my end. I guess we are all waiting.

  • Rosalind Carter

    please fix the audio. there is an echo.

  • Cindil

    Is there supposed to be video as well, or just audio? Currently I only have audio.

  • lindaw

    hi everyone, has it started for anyone yet?

  • Lauren B.

    I only have audio as well!

  • Jo Vallis

    Has this started? I’m just getting a sign saying starting soon.

  • Francis

    It has started. Maybe try refreshing?

  • lindaw

    i don’t have audio even

  • Cecile Bruxelles

    I have audio but no video…

  • Rosalind Carter

    Unfortunately, it is next to impossible to hear the presenters—either due to delay in audio, or another problem. it sounds like the speakers are talking on top of each other.

    • Will Chester

      @Rosalind, is it possible that you have it open in multiple windows? The stream should be quite clear now.

  • Ruthie

    I had the same issue and when I refreshed the page everything worked.

  • Matthew

    Hey everybody – if you have audio but not video, try to go to this link instead: https://www.techchange.org/live-events/mama/early-considerations-in-m-e-for-mnch-mobile-messaging-programs/?tc=mama-m-and-e

    • Cindil

      Thanks! Unfortunately, that didn’t work for me – do you have any other suggestions?

    • Cindil

      Oh! nvmd! I think it depends on your browser – if you are viewing in Firefox you will need to switch to Chrome to get video & audio.

  • Indira Narayanan

    Will it be possible to have copies of the presentations to download after the session?

  • lrosenblum

    I seem to have video but no audio. I’ve tried both links and refreshing, would love to know how to fix it.

    • Cindil

      Try a different web browser – it seems to work well in Chrome.

    • Cecile Bruxelles

      same problem here, link gives no video either… (using Macbook)

    • Matthew

      Hi Mandy – I would also recommend you make sure that your speakers are working by playing a YouTube video. It could be that your YouTube player’s audio is muted. If not that, it is possible that your computer is not playing audio correctly either. I can confirm audio is working on Firefox and Chrome at this point.

  • Francis

    Working fine for me in google chrome

  • Brooke

    Absolutely, Mandy! We can distribute the presentations to all attendees.

  • Dr Emmanuel Owobu

    Having problems viewing this on my.mobile

  • Will Chester

  • Habeeb Salami

    i presently have audio but no video connection; how do i get video?

    • Will Chester

      @Habeeb Salami:disqus – Do you see a form to register for the event? Once you’re registered you’ll be able to see the video.

      • Habeeb Salami

        just registered now, but no video is coming; using firefox though!

  • Rosalind Carter

    I have tried refreshing the site, but audio is still unintelligible. I am hoping you will post the slide set for review since audio is not working.

    • Matthew

      Mandy – Is it possible you have multiple tabs or windows with this page open?

      • Matthew

        Sorry, Rosalind. Your name was wrong for me until I restarted! Apologies about that.

  • Brooke

    Hi. I’m Brooke with the MAMA team. We will definitely share the slides with everyone after the session. I’m sorry for the audio problems!

  • Dieudonne

    Difficulty for me to follow the presentation because the internet connection is slow. could I get this presentation( Power point)?

  • Indira Narayanan

    Can we have the list of messages or a link to the list of messages sent?

  • Cecile Bruxelles

    Question to Atik Ahsan (and others): Is there a database with the exact content of the text messages that are sent out available. I would like to get to know what content it exactly covers.

    • Mandy

      Thanks for the question, Cecile! I just passed it along to our presenters. It might be a question you ask the MAMA team directly via email due to time.

  • Indira Narayanan

    I have lost audio now. It was working fine earlier

  • Brooke

    Hi there. You can request access to the MAMA adaptable messages here: http://www.mobilemamaalliance.org/mobile-messages

    • Cecile Bruxelles

      Thanks!

  • Evelyn

    I am register and I can see the presentation, can you please send me the directo link to see the presentation?

    Thanks

  • Indira Narayanan

    Audi has come back, thanks

  • Lauren Spigel

    Question for Radha: Do you have suggestions on designing a study with a comparison group, keeping in mind the need for a large sample size and the risk of contamination between study and control groups?

  • Indira Narayanan

    In the spectrum of MNCH area, the newborn period is perhaps most neglected and trends in decrease in mortality has been the slowest in this area. Do you think that more can be done for this in the MAMA interventions? If so what would be your priorities?

  • Lauren B.

    What is difference between targeted messaging and push messaging?

  • Globalhealthguru

    Nicki: Who was the MNO? And did you offer any incentives to them in exchange for the 6,000 free messages? MNOs are often wary of giving away “freebies,” since this is sometimes a common request from various projects.

  • Matthew

    Here’s a link that Atik wanted me to share with you all: http://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=2517920&dl=ACM&coll=DL&CFID=397726823&CFTOKEN=21019911

  • Globalhealthguru

    Very, very interesting! I must say that the content of the presentations was a bit different from what I was expecting; however, I love how you guys embedded a feedback loop within project implementation. Typically, when I think “formative research,” I think of research conducted before a project actually takes off. This is a great approach that you guys have developed.

    • Mandy

      Thanks so much! Really appreciate your feedback about the content and structure. We are happy to chat or discuss further if you have questions or additional comments as well.

  • EmperorNEC

    How was the categorization into 3-5 & 6-7?

  • Lauren Spigel

    Thank you, Radha! I will look into the m4RH methodology.

  • Globalhealthguru

    Ciao, everyone!

  • Jo Vallis

    Thank you very much, fascinating and much food for thought.
