The health and well-being of a woman has a direct impact on the health and well-being of her children, family and community. We deliver reliable access care and services women need to be healthy throughout their lives.
Prenatal care and skilled deliveries
We provide training for health workers on emergency obstetric and newborn care and educate communities on essential services for pregnant women and their babies.
Early childhood health care
Globally, preventable infectious diseases remain a leading cause of death for children under age five. We work with clinics to reach mothers and their young children with lifesaving immunizations, medical care and nutrition support.
Young children and pregnant women account for most malaria deaths. In the past decade, we’ve distributed more than 7.5 million nets and provided preventive care for 1.6 million pregnant women in sub-Saharan Africa.
Services for survivors of gender-based violence
We provide medical care and psychosocial counseling, as well as job skills training, microloans and other support to help survivors obtain financial independence.
