More women attending health workshops

Expectant Mother
Expectant Mother's Workshop

Maternal/child health is one of AIL’s major areas of concern in the health field. Women face an unacceptably high risk of death in childbirth due to lack of access to basic health care and   trained health care providers. Since the start of 2013, 10,836 women received reproductive health care at AIL clinics, 250 women (including 126 pregnant women) attended Expectant Mother Workshops and 515 attended Reproductive Health Workshops.  

The Expectant Mother Workshops, now in a third full year of operation, continue to yield remarkable results in that 100% of women who attend them choose a clinic based birth rather than the cultural norm of home delivery. AIL has continued with its Reproductive Health Workshops (RH) in addition to  continuing health education offered at clinics and through the Community Health Worker program. Mini workshops are also offered when needed and are  a more condensed workshop experience specially suited to those with limited time available or issues of transport.
