Zero Maternal and Infant Mortality

We are excited about the ongoing events at the Jesus A. Datu Medical Center! We are playing the central role in the "Pampanga Zero Maternal and Infant Mortality Campaign". This project will establish 30 midwife-owned clinics under the social franchise brand name of Well Family Midwife Clinics (WFMCs). The JADMC will be the hub of this program, serving as a birthing clinic and as a training hospital for the midwives. We, along with our partner Kapampangan Development Foundation, are raising funds for the training of the midwives. Working alongside the Rotary Club, World Medical Relief, Knightsbridge International, among others, we are receiving donations of equipment as well as food for undernourished mothers.

We are working with the Municipal Social Welfare and Development Officers to help us identify indigent patients for our ongoing cataract, medical, and harelip/cleft palate projects.

We plan to do a weekly free clinic (to begin with) for children and mothers as part of the Maternal and Child Care component of our program.

Our goal is to promote a ZERO maternal and infant mortality for the province of Pampanga in 5 years through a community-based approach.
