Lack of access to maternal healthcare and covid-19 are impacting mothers adversely.
Every ‘Pregnant Woman’ hopes to have an uncomplicated pregnancy and give birth to a healthy baby. Poor health of the mother, including any untreated health problems, contribute to newborn deaths or premature births and with low birth weights. These challenges are growing worse as the rural communities are struggling to cope with the corona virus pandemic.
Women in rural communities are more likely to begin prenatal care late or not at all. Minimal education, low health literacy, unplanned pregnancies and poor transportation have all been associated with this problem which adversely impacts the mother and child health. During the COVID-19 pandemic, access to safe maternity care is a growing concern for pregnant women across the country.
Grassroots level healthcare awareness programs to mothers and strengthening of rural health centers
Our solutions include training programs for district coordinators on bi-monthly basis, who inturn will train and educate mothers, children and community mentors in maternal healthcare and government supported programs. These training programs provide accessible skilled maternal health workforce. Local coordinators and mentor nurses educate mothers on healthcare practices.
Strengthen rural Health Subcenters by mentoring the healthcare staff and also provide the necessary infrastructure upgradation which directly benefits mothers and children. Ekam's goal is to train, motivate and monitor, to empower local communities, to PREVENT disease than having to treat, thus being a cost effective model.
