SEE THE FULL STORY

Our goal
ensure that Malawian mothers have the resources and knowledge they need to raise healthy children
The Challenge

Maternal and child mortality rates in Malawi remain among the world's worst.

In many ways, motherhood in Malawi is the same as Motherhood everywhere. Children are welcomed into the world with boundless love and hope. However, too often in Malawi, women do not have the resources to ensure that their children and grandchildren survive their first years.

Our Solution

Individualized respectful home-based care improves health and survival.

Newborns and critically ill postpartum women are identified and enrolled at the District Hospital. A nurse is assigned and within days of discharge visits them in their home. During each visit the nurse assesses the client, their family, home environment, and community. She offers targeted health education. She works to mobilize both family and the community in support of the program beneficiary.
