dc.description.abstract5 ABSTRACT The Beyond Zero campaign initiated by the First Lady, Margaret Kenyatta, intends to complement existing initiatives to improve access and quality of health services to a zero state of maternal and child mortality, and zero new HIV infections, these mobile clinics provide free services on prenatal, antenatal and postnatal care. Limited resourceful information of where a mobile clinic is inconveniences most patients. This research paper studies the existing mobile clinics and as an outcome develops a web based application based on Location Based Services technology to locate the beyond zero campaign mobile clinic, quick access options, scheduled activities and supplementary information as an outreach program on health for beyond zero campaign patients. A web based prototype application was developed using several web technologies (HTML, Javascript, XML, PHP & MySQL). Using a simple SMS query “location” a patient or enrolled patient at the clinic can get the location of the mobile clinic and scheduled activities. Questionnaire survey was done with 12 participants that were used to represent the population on test and evaluation. All the components of the model were implemented and tested. The results obtained from the testing phase showed that 75% of the participants were satisfied with the application ease of use from its simple Short Message inquiry of the location using any kind of phone, regardless of whether the phone is a smart phone or a feature phone, timely message reply, and real time location with street name and route. 83.3% of the participants were satisfied with the structuring, the location inquiry and patient enrollment with Short message reminders of scheduled clinic appointments. It is recommended that a pilot application of the prototype should first be developed tested with a given sample participants especially in counties where low turnout of patients was recorded at beyond zero campaign mobile clinics. Afterwards a viable production application should be implemented to test its viability in locating the mobile clinic.en_US
