Celebrating International Women's Day

This Tuesday, March 8th, we join the world in celebrating 100 years of International Women's Day.

As an organization committed to improving maternal health in communities most in need, we take notice of this special milestone and acknowledge the countless contributions women make to their families, communities and countries.  In the developing world, where we work, women are both the economic and social providers requiring that they be supported and their health needs met.  That’s why we are committed to addressing the leading causes of maternal death by ensuring mothers and frontline providers have access to safe, affordable and effective medicines.

Thanks to your support through Global Giving, we are making motherhood safer in Mozambique and 14 other developing countries and our collaborative efforts are improving health while strengthening communities.
