Sela Canada helps improve maternal outcomes for pregnant women without a fixed address

Sela Canada took home the 2014 Microsoft Humanitarian Response Citizenship Award for their work with the My Baby and Me Passport, a tool to improve maternal and child health outcomes for young, pregnant homeless and marginally housed women.

“We are deeply honored to receive the 2014 Microsoft Humanitarian Response Citizenship Award for the hard work our team put into building the ‘My Baby and Me’ Infant Passport Mobile App for St. Michael’s Hospital.” said Eran Barlev, CEO of SELA Canada. “At SELA Canada we have a proud history of investing in community and charity-based work and each year we prioritize a project where we can use technology to build better communities by serving people at most risk and need.”

Microsoft Azure plays well with everything” says Mark McDonnell, Software Developer for Sela Canada. The compatibility with open source technologies means developers can use their preferred language and accelerate development without having to worry about managing hardware. Sela Canada also uses Azure to power its Open Data app: Toronto Festivals and Events app.

Sela Canada is part of the Sela Group who is a global leader in IT training, outsourcing and consulting. Training is part of the fabric of the company — a natural partner for Make Web Not War to support the local developer communities across Canada.
