Challenge

Nearly 1 in 10 children born in Togo won't live to see their fifth birthday and approximately 300 women die per 100,000 births. Togo lacks the functioning healthcare system required to deliver effective treatments to women and children who need them. Consequently, women and children too often die from treatable causes.

Solution

The Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Program implemented by Integrate Health employs 25 trained Community Health Workers and supports 8 nurses and midwives across 4 clinics. Together these healthcare providers treat children under five for common illnesses like malaria, diarrhea, pneumonia and malnutrition, and provide pre- and post-natal care for women to ensure safe deliveries.

Long-Term Impact

With your help, Integrate Health can ensure that no woman or child dies from a preventable, treatable illness. Every woman and child deserves access to high quality healthcare. With your support we can make this wish a reality.
