Unintentional injuries among under-fives represent an important cause of preventable morbidity in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. In-home interventions targeting caregiver safety practices currently show promise in reducing household injury risks. Mobile health (mHealth) is emerging as a potentially cost effective platform for the delivery of critical health information in resource poor settings. The goal of this project is to introduce an mHealth intervention targeting risk factors for child burn injuries in Dar es Salaam.
Changes to the design of the study and elaboration of the control group were made.
