Commitment Progress

Since September 2015, ayzh piloted a total of 3000 new born kits in the market (1000 were pilot for each of the three versions of the kit). Of these three, two different versions of the new born kit have been launched commercially and are available at www.ayzh.com. The third version of the newborn kit, Maitri (an innovative combination of our Clean Birth Kit and Newborn Kit, is
also available on the company website; however, making it widely commercially available, further prototyping and refinements are needed and underway based on user feedback in the pilot. ayzh is currently raising funds to scale all our products that comprehensively target the the Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child and Adolescent Health spectrum in India and East Africa, including our New Born Kits, all of which are an essential aspect of our growth. ayzh is the only for-profit company that provides an integrated suite of products that address and link critical needs across the entire reproductive health life cycle of a woman. As a “B2B” (business to business) company primarily working in the private sector, it is challenging to measure impact on a daily basis. However, since the commitment we have instituted two research studies to measure impact of cost of our core product in partnership with Duke University and another impact study underway called a “Narrative Identity”. This qualitative study aims to assess pregnant women’s knowledge, attitudes and practices with respect to safe delivery and cord care and their experiences. ayzh is happy to share this data with the EWEC team when they are published.
