Mother and Child health care in Pakistan

Pakistans distict Pesharwa with its diverse population of residents, internally displaced people and refugees from Afghanistan is lacking a sufficient primary health care service. This situation is especially dangerous for vulnerable groups such as children, older or sick people as well as pregnant women and newborns. In a critical situation this lack of primary health care can turn out fatal.

The project was implemented in October 2017 and is carried out by our coalition member Malteser International. It focusses on mother and child health care in both refugee and non-refugee communities. The project aims to ensure proper and around the clock pre- and postnatal care, birth support and emergency transfers, if necessary. Therefore, the health centers were equipped with necessary birthing material, such as medication or dressing material.

As mother and child health is also influenced by various aspects, other actions are implemented as well:

  • The nutritional state of the mother has a great influence on the child’s health. Therefore the nutritional state of pregnant or lactating women and children of 6 to 59 month is surveyed and monitored
  • A sufficient and hygienic water supply is necessary to protect patients from water-based infection and ensure basic hygiene. Therefore the local water infrastructure around and within health centers is improved and maintained
  • psychosocial help is being included into basic health care
  • local and communal health workers are trained, for example concerning “nutrition and health”

The project both improves the management process in local health care and provides the community with basic, self-care coping strategies.

We are very grateful that you support the work of our coalition. Your donation enabled us to increase our various support to people in need. Thank you!
