Embrace

Embrace's mission is to advance maternal and child health by delivering innovative solutions to the world's most vulnerable populations. We catalyze the creation of new products with strong potential to improve health outcomes in developing countries, distribute those products directly to the people who need them most, and integrate them into public health programs to have a deeper and more lasting impact on the communities we serve. Our primary goal is to help save the lives of low birth weight and premature infants by distributing an inexpensive and effective infant warmer in conjunction with educational programs that address the root causes of neonatal hypothermia.

Programs

Embrace has a comprehensive program model designed to leverage our innovative, low-cost infant warmer as a catalyst for broader impact on maternal and child health outcomes in developing countries. We focus on raising awareness of the devastating impact of hypothermia; providing hands-on training on the Embrace infant warmer as well as Kangaroo Mother Care; and addressing the root causes of low birth weight and other critical maternal and child health issues. Embrace has launched 22 programs in 11 countries on 3 continents, helping save the lives of more than 39,000 infants.
