Maternal Child Health updates

The Maternal Child Health Program has started the year with a bang. Last week we had our monthly class and focused on dental hygiene. The women received information related to the importance of and how to look after both baby teeth and permanent teeth. We distributed brushes to both mothers and children and practiced using the correct techniques.


We also announced to beneficiaries new services to be provided this year, including a Cervical Cancer and Pap Smear Clinic day and the family planning method of their choice. While the fertility rate across Guatemala has dropped to 4 births per woman, in and around Santiago Atitlán it still averages 7. Many women desire to space their children or prevent additional pregnancies but do not have the resources to purchase a method. We are excited to be adding these crucial reproductive health services to the MCH Program, services which will ensure the continued good health of the women which in turn will allow them to better care for their children.
